It's tough to stop drinking -- so if you're trying -- even starting today, just now -- bravo for you! You're amazing!
It's also tough to hang in there and pile up one day after another of no drinking, so if you're doing that -- take a bow, we love you here, you rock!

I don't know why, but the other night I was out and I knew I would never drink again. I know "never" is a tricky word, but something feels different now.
There wasn't even anything special going on. I wasn't watching someone drunk embarrass themselves or noticing something specifically negative about drinking. I just got this feeling that I don't drink.
I felt like "not drinking" was just a basic character trait of mine now. I'm not sure why. It just feels right.
