Ned, do you drink yourself to sleep every night? If you're getting bent every night drinking Wild Turkey on ice and shot gunning cans of beer, just
stop buying it and find a different hobby in place of the time u spend drinking. Un-plug the TV. Quitting cold turkey is possible. You CAN do it! If I
did it, anybody can do it. I was drinking 1 liter of Vodka in a single night, maybe 7 hours and that bottle was gone. If I went out, $150 spent every
time. I did this for a while, not 30 yrs, but long enough and then I almost died one night from drinking too much, too fast. I quit cold turkey 9 yrs
ago and I haven't been drunk since. I quit for 5 yrs without a drop, since then, I have maybe 12 drinks a yr just because I like Margaritas, colorado
bulldogs, a long island ice tea or a slippery nipple every now and then. But that's it! 1 and I'm done. Finding a hobby really helped 9 yrs ago.
I bought a pool table and my new hobby became pool. I started playing hockey again and I never think about drinking.
So my advice is to just stop buying it and find a new hobby, Ned. Im telling ya, it can work. May I suggest sky diving. You sound like you've just
been kicked back with your brew, taking it easy for too long. No real excitement. Go buy some bungee cords, a harness and a high bridge. Break out of
that shell you're in and find that rush! lol
If it's not so easy for you, then the way I see it, being a drinker, isn't as bad as being A LOT of other things. Just to name a few. At least
you're not a drug dealer, a heroin junkie, a child molester, a thief, a cranky SOB, A catholic priest, a cop on a power trip, a corrupt politician,
Andy Dick or a 1%er. Ya know? Real low life human beings.
But anyways, I hope you're serious and I hope my advice helps. Good luck!
