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!

Why It Feels Different

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.
