Don't Buy Cheap Tools, That's How Ya Get Yer Knuckles Busted.
I just hit two fucking years without a drink last week.Damn, what made you take that enormous step? :)
I have been a hard partier for all my adult life and it left me with nothing but misery.I lost houses, a wife, a ten year relationship after that and pretty much everything I owned.Totaled almost 30 cars, the full meal deal.Towards the end, at 150 lbs., I was drinking almost a fifth of straight whiskey with beer chasers all by myself, every day.It's called being a functional alcoholic because I still got up and went to work.My oldest friend came to me in desperate need of help and I was such a mess I couldn't help myself, let alone him. I will never forgive myself for that as the guy literally kept me alive thirty years ago.That same day I was drunk and driving with my wife's kid in the car. She picked up and left.That night I sat myself down and had a long conversation with myself and asked what was more important in my life. The booze or my family and continued freedom because I was drinking and driving every day too.At fifty two years of age, I finally grew up.I quit cold turkey.
Good on you, keep it up. Now the offer is for coffee. But do write a little more frequently.
