    I gave up the drink for the most part 20 months ago. As a result everything in my life has improved, I got married had a baby and am generally happier than I’ve ever been. However, I’ve been dabbling again, and I’m not happy about it. I know better I can see the good things that have happened every day. I love my wife and my baby, and I don’t want to be a drunk around them. Financially things are getting really rough, and I think that’s kicked me into drinking again. I’m not a bad drunk, but I may say some stupid things now and then that I would never say sober, I don’t like who I am when I’m drinking and I don’t want my kid to ever when she’s old enough to see me drunk. I just wanted to write it down that I’m not going to drink today, and I’m going to try not to drink tomorrow, and every day after that for me, for my wife, and for my baby, I know I can do it, I’ve done it for 20 months and I don’t want to start backsliding now. This is my mantra, and if I have to look up this post up everyday for encouragement that’s what I’ll do. I’m here to tell you life is way better on the other side, and I don’t ever want to go back to the way my life was before.
