Skip to comments.No Hangovers for Two Years! [Now 3 Years!]
Posted on 10/08/2005 7:33:57 AM PDT by RobFromGa
October 8, 2003 is the date that I quit drinking for good. It has been a great two years!
When I was drinking, I thought that life would be impossibly boring without alcohol. How can you enjoy parties, football games, vacations, weekends, etc without alcohol? I found out that not only is it possible to enjoy these things, that in many ways they are made better without the "buzz".
I haven't had a hangover in two years and that is a blessing.
I have occasionally had brief thoughts that I might be able to drink normally now that I have controlled myself for this length of time. But I understand myself better now. The fact that I would even consider such a question and action even for a millisecond is a sign of my lack of control over alcohol. My only sane solution is to keep it out of my body.
I urge anyone who suspects that they may have a drinking problem to find help and deal with the issue. I wish I had quit when I was 30 instead of 41.
Almost a year ago, I posted a thread on FR, If You Suspect You Might Have A Drinking Problem (An Open Letter). There might be some help there for you if you are trying to quit.
Thanks to all who have helped me to quit and to stay sober.
Where's your humility, Dude?
This is breaking news?
its not in breaking news
Good for you, Rob.
Good for you Rob, I'm working on sober year number 7 myself and I feel great.
Other peoples reformations are rarely that interesting. And never News
How do you know if you had a good time the night before if you no longer wake up with puke on your shoes? ;)
I stole it.
Yes, I'll take it as breaking news. Your life may have been saved and this might the thing that helps someone else along. Go ahead and take your nanosecond of breaking news.
Congratulations and best wishes.
Lookin' for a pat on the back?
Go bury your head in the sand.

Well done. As my grandfather used to say, "self denial is good for the soul". He was right.
