I just looked back at several posts where I tried to stop drinking and each time I started drinking. It’s been 6 months since this process started – since I started to think about no beer. What would life be like sober? It’s day 2 of not drinking again and it’s 3:30 pm and I’m thinking about a beer. I’m thinking about leaving early to put two or three down before heading home to be with my family.
I just dealt with Gout & wow that hurts. Why did I get the gout – from drinking and not taking care of my buddy. I’ve spent most days in a cloud. I’m too old and to young to be this stupid. I need to cleanse my body.
This is my reason not to drink today. Maybe writing each day is going to help.
