I have worked in a family business for most of my life, so it's hard to get fired. I probably would have been many times over if I was just another employee.
I have been done for DUI and been jailed for drunk and disorderly a couple of times, but that was when I was younger - reckless and crazy, with a death wish. I don't do that crap anymore.
Which path would that be? Christianity? Buddhism? Islam? Any of the hundreds of thousands of offshoots of the thousands of religions?

Man you need to man up and quit. You have no ideal how much better you would feel if you stop drinking that poison.
Ever see how stupid you look, a fool, get down on you knee and ask that a higher power takes this from you, I did.
You will feel better about yourself and everything, what are you afraid of.
Aline yourself with that which is, the Grace , glory and Truth of the Creator are upon you, do yourself proud, hold your head up high and rejoice in all that is good, beautify, love.
You wrote this thread, now man up your question has been answered, come home to the Truth Brother, be not afraid as the Creator ever walks with you.
Rejoice you are saved. whether you want it or not you and all are saved, the Maker won't let you really fall you are his Creature that is dearly loved the choice is yours, but a light in the darkness for those more lost than you.
Gain the respect you deserve and want, you have the most powerful thing in the Univese as your back up support, fear not all is good.
Time to come home to the Truth that is before you, that undeniable thing which supports the mighty pillars of the Universe.
That booze was only a taste of the extacy that awaits you, once you find the path.

My name is Ned and I’m 42 years old. I have been addicted to a nasty drug for nearly 30 years. I first tasted this sweet substance when my parents had a party at home and I sneaked away with a small cache and experimented with my cousin in the back-streets of my neighbourhood. It made me feel good. My inhibitions abated. I felt more ‘real’ somehow. I laughed, I fell over. I wanted more.
30 years on and I’m still using – every day. I can’t wait to get home from work and partake. I slip in to a casual slumber – it feels good. My consciousness changes from tight to easy – I ‘feel’ more stuff when I’m on it. I use to try and regulate who I am.
I come from a long line of drug users. My mum always said to me that if I ever got the ‘taste for it’ then that would be the end of me. She had already seen many of her family members succumb to this wicked substance.
Many out there will know what I’m talking about, because they feel what I feel. Living in this realm of existence without this drug would seem almost unbearable. I have tried to go without it for periods of time, but life keeps forcing me back on to the tread-mill it seems.
Yes, this drug I speak of is alcohol. Legal in nearly all countries, but ever so dangerously addictive. Don’t fool yourself if you think that you can drop it, once you’ve started using. Once it’s in your blood stream it’s there forever.
I know I will get some opposition to this thread, with members attempting to support responsible use of alcohol. The truth is, nobody really uses responsibly, because it’s nearly impossible to stop at just 1 drink.
Before your next drink , think seriously about what you’re doing to your mind and body. Are you an addict too ?
