So you want to stop drinking alcohol.
Every January 1st, people wake up at noon to enjoy the New Year’s very first hangover and swear they will give-up drinking as a New Year’s Resolution.

If you don’t know me already, I haven’t drank any alcohol in 5 years. I used to count in months because I was still in the infancy of abstaining.

Well, there are probably a few folks out there that have done that, but if it were that easy then you wouldnt be reading this post now would you?

Is it just me, or while looking back on my drunken self does the time feel extra wasted? Wasted as in Time Better Spent Elsewhere but also, as in Time Spent Hammered. Looking back, I did a lot of both.
Occasionally I’ll think Was there ever a time I wasnt at least buzzed? Parties, work functions, Tuesday nights listening to podcasts and playing video games, all under the influence. I guess I got some things of meagre value done in those times, and I wasn’t exactly wasted on alcohol, but alcohol was definitely present for a lot of my memories of that past 10 years.
