  • OT: 2 years! I am grateful and proud

    Today is my 2 year w/o alcohol anniversary!! Feeling like tooting my own horn a little ( I would if I could!)

    Kinda proud cuz i have also been dealing with an undiagnosed health issue that has made me wonder if I am going down at times. Pain.

    But the strength I have gained has pulled me thru this and the loss of many friends in the last year and several family members. Lost my mom after an indescribably painful fight w/emphysema. DON'T SMOKE! PLEASE!

    And MUCH lighter note I have saved enuf from the booze to buy my 3 top guitars and my Mesa! All the small stuff really adds up!

    Just happy today

                      I just finished a beer on the sun deck before I sat down to take a little surf.

                      I congratulate you thoroughly for giving it up. Too many people have a problem with it (and/or many other things) but continue to say "I can't quit". It infuriates me if I think about it but I have learned to just walk past it and not to waste my energy on people who can't make good choices for themselves.

                      You're already ahead of so many people...AND you have a Mesa!!

                        Im proud of you man. Its in my blood to drink but i have pretty much kicked it to. I can proudly say in the last 4 years i haven't got drunk. I have had an occasional snort but no drunkness. It cost me to much money and to many friends.
