I respect and admire your decision to quit drinking. I too have given up the sauce, but for far different reasons (which I will spare the forum at
I personally feel almost disgusted with "drunk" people now... and perhaps mostly disgusted with the realization of the fact that- that was me! The
debauchery as well as the idiotic slurs and pseudo-philosophy seems so wasteful and coarse to me now...
I am with you in the being right in between moderate and alcoholic drinking, however my disposition was of a behavioral manner, rather than a physical
one. I never suffered with weight gain, nor DTs. Instead, my problem was the amplification of anger under the influence.
Generally, I was a jovial and happy drunk. Also, I didn't get wasted every time, but when I did... it was the unpredictability that was my problem. If
I was among friends, all was well. In fact, I had some of the happiest, most moronic fun. However, other times (namely two... when I was expected to
follow directives or meet the expectations of a loved one) I had very well almost died and/or killed someone else...
It is that very uncertainty which has ended my drinking "career." I ADORE craft beers. I savor the artistry of every aspect of a well made beer, and
it saddens me to bid farewell to them... but I must. I have played the "just a couple drinks" game far too long, and with far too poor results to even
attempt it again.
So, again... I commend your decision, sir. The health of body and clarity of mind you will cultivate from taking this path will surely benefit
yourself as well as those around you FAR more so than the path of intoxication. If you are ever struggling, feel free to PM me.
