Wouldn't it be nice to just QUIT?! No time like the present.

So I hope you all are managing to have a HAPPY holiday without the "Happy Hour" type happiness.

A sober holiday is a good holiday. Hell, staying sober is definately worth celebrating, right?

Enjoy yours and remember eggnog is available without booze, and tastes like crap anyway, with or without liquor.

There's been tons of moronic spam in the comments here lately -- sorry.  Working on getting rid of it.

Around Christmas 1985 I had been sober for six or eight weeks and I got sabotaged with a rum ball.  I didn't intend for alcohol to pass my lips but I greedily ate this delicious candy and realized half way through that I was in effect "drinking."  Depressing.  I was so proud of the more than 30 days sober that I had piled up one day at a time.  I talked with a friend and I talked with Beth, and I decided that I was not going to re-set the clock because of a mistake.  So I still count my sobriety, one day at a time since November 2, 1985.

This year I consciously raised a glass of champagne to toast my son and daughter-in-law at their wedding.  I didn't set the clock back for that sip of champagne either.

But, abstinence is abstinence, and it doesn't feel good to rationalize around these moments.  I don't know why I chose to tell this story today.  Maybe it's because I'm feeling depressed and need to examine some of my behavior, positive and negative.

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!
