Rehab Blues

Ah, it feels good to be clean again. The drug was ingrained in my system and it took the good people in rehab a full 8 days to get it out. I sometimes think that blogging isn’t a bad addiction to sport, but, at times, it just becomes too much of a responsibility.

i couldn’t think straight. Everything I did, I used to twist them in a way that I could write a post about. Once, when I held my breath for a whole five minutes and turned a shade of blue and thought that I would write a post on this, I knew something was dreadfully wrong with me and that I needed a break. I checked myself into the MirrorCracked Rehab Center For Lousy Addicts. It worked wonders.

The last straw that broke the camel’s back, or rather, pushed me into rehab was the fact that I fantasized about writing a post titled “Imagination Land,” in which, I thought of writing about my experiences in Imagination Land and in particular, the incident where I kicked a traffic cop in the balls and landed up in jail. But then, thanks to the last vestiges of common sense, I shelved the idea and checked myself into rehab.

I don’t know how many of you would have done the same if you were in my shoes, but if you were in my shoes I’d pity you. Not because the shoes would be too big and you’d trip often, but because carrying on the mantle of God’s yo-yo has its pros and cons, something that only yo-yos can handle. But anyway, enough of my rants. I have decided to get back on the wagon (or is it off the wagon) and start the addiction all over again. After all, this isn’t injurious to health. Is it? πŸ˜€

Rehab is for quitters, anyway! πŸ˜€

  1. Hehehehhe I used to have these troubles where in everything that happened around me, I would have a post ready in my head and waiting to get to my lappie!!

    So much so that, my friends would also be “Ohhh this one for sure goes on your blog, innit?” πŸ˜‰


  2. *MirrorCracked Rehab Center For Lousy Addicts* LOL…
    Yu’re the true addict. Blogging was created just for your sake! πŸ˜›

    Even though I’m not a regular blogger, my friends still say “Ah…she’ll put this up on her blog for sure”! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Blogging sure is a responsibility…and i’ve been ignoring it for a while now πŸ˜€
    Damn! Now you’re also back!

  3. @La Vida Loca
    I was comfortably numb, actually! πŸ˜‰

    Hehehehe! I guess that’s what all non-bloggers say to bloggers… either way, I’m back! πŸ˜€
    I think you should too!

  4. Dude did rehab serve liquor? Then I am happy for you. Good to have you after all we were missing a good laugh in morning.

  5. Now you fully understand where Amy Winehouse is coming from, don’t you, when people keep sending her to rehab, and she says ‘no, no, no…’. πŸ˜‰ BTW she is serving candyfloss laced with cocaine at her parties, say our gutter press publications. Addiction to blogging is immensely preferable.

  6. @Chirax
    Haha! You’ll have your laughs now, man! And yes… they served chilled beer! Weren’t we supposed to meet up for beer, btw? πŸ˜€

    Amy Winehouse? I guess that says it all, doesn’t it? πŸ˜€

  7. “Everything I did, I used to twist them in a way that I could write a post about.” – I have been there, crazy land!!

  8. Yeah!!!! I go with you! nothing is as addictive as addiction… So stay addicted to something in life, postively!!!! Even I used to prepare a blogpost mentally! when something ahppens.. Cant help it.! may be bloggers are that way? bloggers are made that way..

  9. @Raji
    Oh yes, it is! πŸ˜€

    No, they are not allowed in the MirrorCracked Rehab Center For Lousy Addicts! πŸ˜€

    Thanks man. Sometimes it just gets to you, so I took some time off…

    Hehe! Thanks! πŸ˜€

    Amy Cokehouse… Hmmm… I think I’d like to meet her… πŸ˜€

  10. Oh yes…I guess I should be part of the blogging without obligation movement else I would turn up like you πŸ˜€ and yeah I don’t want to be in your shoes…not only because they would be big and trip me making a fool of myself…but they probably would stink too!! πŸ˜‰

  11. so that explains your absence!!

    I was once addicted to orkut that I deleted my entire profile and then when I became normal (normal and vimal rhymes, na.I just realised that), opened a fresh account. But you cant do that with a blog,rt?

    The show must go on!!! keep giving us a smile in our weird life πŸ™‚

  12. haha, nice one! i’m addicted but i ain’t going to rehab. i just stop short of pathological lying. πŸ˜€ as amy winehouse would put it: “they try to make me go to rehab, but i say no, no, no!”

  13. @Apar
    My shoes don’t stink!! πŸ˜›

    I’ve deleted my orkut profile and recreated it 5 times… πŸ˜€

    LOL… Yeah, i saw the video today… Hehehe! πŸ˜€

    Yes! I am back! πŸ˜€

    Thanks!! πŸ˜€

    8 days dude! 8 days in rehab! πŸ˜€

  14. “i couldn’t think straight” Do I detect a small “i” Mr. Editor? Too bad for an editor! πŸ˜›

    Welcome back!! Did “kisses and hugs” make u come back?

  15. Blogging, Blog hopping, commenting, replying to comments are all addicting. But it is a good addiction to get you a change in life. Welcome back!

  16. Ahahah… Have u been in rehab? πŸ™‚

    btw, how are you? I hope that everything is ok for you… *HUGZ*

  17. Welcome back πŸ™‚

    A month or 2 back I used to be online 24X7 but now have come out of the addiction πŸ™‚

    BTW I too keep doing this…every smallest incident starts taking a form of a post and as many have said above even my frenz keep asking so u have sprained your foot, it is going in your blog na?? hehehe

  18. Oh oh,,you thought of quitting???

    Blogging is addicitng 😦 At times i feel good about being addicted,at time I feel im going overboard spending too much time on this reading and reading and reading ..Life is not confined to this small screen…

    Keep writing..Good day

  19. For a minute when I read “rehab” I was worried! Well, it’s just a blog addiction huh. We have all been there and as you said, it’s not injurious to health. I would say it’s good for health. Keeps your mind whirring! πŸ™‚

  20. Lol , welcome back πŸ˜€ . . .

    As for “blogging from the imagination land” . .been there , done that & I am still doing that 😦

  21. you seem to be a true addict πŸ˜€ lolz
    and its better to be regarded as a blogging addict than going to a rehab center!
    and as nita said it keeps you busy and in touch with the world! so keep blogging πŸ™‚

  22. Nice one. Everytime I read your blog there is something to be think about and something to be laugh about. When I red the word rehab I thought it in a different way. You took me to a different way. πŸ™‚ Keep blogging man hope to hear the many results from mirrorcracked labs.

  23. The truth of this post is completely understood. Here myself is one more of the addicts who think of everything as a post. And ‘we do not quit’ πŸ™‚ We can be anything but not quitters!!!

  24. @Arvind
    LOL… Thanks man! It’s good to be back!

    I don’t know what to say. You are always so rude to me. After all that we’ve been thro… 😦

    Yup! Some addictions are good! Thanks! It’s good to be back!

    Welcome back πŸ™‚
    I’m good, how’ve you been?

    HEhehehe!! Yeah! I swear, it gets irritating after the first few times!

    No! I never thought of quitting! Blogging is the only thing I’m good at…

    Haha! Yeah, it’s good for the mind, but sometimes, I feel it’s good to take an unplanned break!

    Hehehe! Your posts on imagination land are a hundred times better than mine, trust me!

    Take it! Take it! Take it!

    Thanks man! I know, I know, I should do that, but a break is needed, no?

    Hahahaha!! Thanks!! MirrorCracked Labs has noted your comment and will not disappoint you!

    Hehe! Yes! Totally!

  25. Dude…
    Totally with you on this!! I took this 2 week break to do this exactly! Each incident, book or article I read made me into this introspecting idiot who looks at it from a published view!!

    BTW…Hairy Potter!! ROCK-Some!!!!

  26. Niks, blogging is the best and a healthy addiction one could ever have…! Glad, you ain’t doing what you thought of doing in the first place. Hell ya, there are times when I just know I am ready for a post, alas I wouldn’t have something on me to jot the same down and later the bhllakad me would completely forget about it… πŸ™‚ now a days, I write on my cell…:) Thank god for certain inventions.

  27. No wonder thr was no blog posted for a few days:) hope ur cured? I am addicted to readin ur blogs just as musch as u are do continue to write πŸ™‚
