I wanted to make sure I ended 2016 with a sincere and in-depth reflection about where I am in my life when it comes to drinking booze. My main issue with drinking booze was that I liked every thing about it except the impact it had on my life. In the moments of "having a good time," I was awesome. I really was. I was one of those "all-in" type of party dudes, having a good time until I went beyond my limit. So many DUMB and idiotic things while under the influence were said and done by me.
Frankly, those days all seem such a long time ago when I reflect about them today, 12/31/2016.
It is 6 years (2192 days) since I "officially" quit drinking booze.
I admit I have had some situations come up in 2016 when I seriously questioned why I quit drinking, but those situations are best left to my private journal as the environment to unwrap those thoughts and feelings.
I will say that I persevered and I did not cave to those situations of weakness.
Now that I'm over half-way there, my short-term goal is to reach a decade of sobriety (2020), but my long-term goal is to never drink booze again.
I'm confident I will be successful.
