Just watch people react to you not drinking on New Year's Eve.
Scuba interesting coin. 18 months seems so far away at this point and I think it's next November.
Everyone in my office is PRETTY MUCH out for the rest of the week. Those who come in won't be getting much done. I can't help but think of how many drank extra on Tuesday night knowing they'd have today to be productive at home.
You get a day by waking up and living life and the shit it throws at you.
Do not drink alcohol, then you have one day free and clear.
Rinse and repete.
You have to practice more at trying to enjoy life more.
Get involved in something or someone else.
Keep yourself BUSY. When you ask yourself WHY ME??? Ask yourself WHY NOT ME? afterwards.
Are you some how going to be insulated from the tragedies of life?
You just have to deal with the shit for real.
You have to practice habits in order to sew them into something more.
I am fully done with Alcohol,
I have NO problems with ANYONE else drinking.
The problems in my life were cause by MY drinking.
I do not hang out in bars, they offer nothing for me.
If you do not take any tests, you will not fail any tests.
I spent allot of years totally away from alcohol.
When I buy it for others it means nothing to me.
I see a beer as the same as finger nail polish remover in my mind.
Of course I also see a table saw as like a Homicidal maniac.
I still have 8 fingers.
I am getting tons of shit done.
Past 2 summers put in two curtain drains all by hand.
Right now finishing half the basement.
I am 59 and lost 48 pounds this past summer.
Almost down to my fighting weight.
Good luck and best wishes
