    Well,
    I’ve decided to stop drinking for good. After wondering why I became an alcoholic (genes, stress, S12 Step National MeetingsIs, etc.) I’ve decided to stop making it so complicated and just eliminate the common denominator of my problems as of late –> Alcohol.

    So today is my third day without alcohol and I don’t even miss it a bit. I was on a plane this afternoon and the girl in front of me ordered a double shot bloody mary. I didn’t envy her a bit…

    Sometimes I even wonder if I want alcohol just because I know I shouldn’t have it – the ol’ “wantin’ what you can’t have” syndrome.

    This time I have more of a reason to give it up – I promised my aunt, who may only have 6 months to a year to live (stage IV cancer) that I would call her sober every day and we would talk about what we are thankful for TODAY.

    If you are religious, please keep her in you prayers – that would really mean a lot to me.

    Thanks everyone – here is to the close of my third sober day and a sobriety date of September 19, 2008.
