Too late for me as well, Alder.
I come from a family of partyers.
My friends are partyers as well.
Most people I meet are partyers.
I have been drinking since I was 18 and still do.
Mind you I cannot do it like I used to, and a few days to a week go by when I have nothing.
I take this time to dry out a little.
But if I went to a doctor and he told me I was going to die if I don't stop drinking...... I will be saying my goodbyes.
I just wish the drinks had no alcohol, because I do not do it to get drunk.
Just a couple here and there now and then and five or six on the weekends per day.
I love the taste. I don't need the alcohol, and alcohol free beverages SUCK!
Rise, I commend you on your journey. I could not last a month without at least a beer or two, let alone a whole year!! That takes real courage!
