On this Day in History.....

It was right about this time one year ago today that I came rolling in from the Package Store with three 12-packs of Augie Busch's finest and a big ol' bag of spicy porkrinds, getting ready to tie one on and get roarin' fucked up. I can remember the date well because it was also the occasion of the last beer that I've drank. Drinking the actual beer I don't remember too well, if at all, but I haven't drank since that night. Or morning. Whatever.
So yeah, I haven't taken a lovely, cool, refreshing, sparkling drink in a motherfucking year.
Coincidentally, Lisa moved in one year ago tomorrow. Kinda funny how that worked out, huh?

I am more than proud of you. I drink, smoke and generaly have a grand time being slightly different from myself.
Being different from myself is interesting, I am more out going, but I find also that I become a boar.
Not real sure that "Not Drinking" is in my future, but I give you a Hearty Salute and a "I Love ya Bro"

Congrat`s, the longer you stay away from that stuff ,the less you`ll care about it. I quit all that shit 29yrs. ago last May and it`s probably why I`m still alive. Been in some awkward situation`s since tho ,being out with friend`s and them thinking I was refusing to drink with them .

23 years here. I don't miss it one bit. Works for some but it stopped working well for me. Congrats.

Did the same thing in 1979 when I decided that I was going to marry that sweet thing I woke up next to this morning. Figured, with my history, it was the smart move. I don't regret it a bit.

Wow! Congrats. I'm getting closer and closer to doing the same thing. I always have a good time getting hammered, but the cost to my body is getting way to high. Two nights ago i pulled into Oakland to see some friends - ended up sleeping in my vehicle. Today is morning two, and I still feel like shit!

You have planted a seed. If you can do it...

What do you do when you get that feeling that shit is building up and you have to reset your yourself with a good drunk?

Well done, wirecutter. Well done.

Congratulations, man. I have never mustered the will power to stop for that long.

(Reaching for more aspirin as I type because my buddy had to introduce me to his vodka margaritas late last night.)
