It's been 14 days, the longest stretch in ten years, and after many failed attempts, I've finally stopped drinking. I want to thank you guys for all of your threads, sharing your stories, and your well-wishes to others on this journey. I was a spectator before. Now I am a participant. It's all played a part in helping me reach the tipping point where I could successfully abstain from having that "one" drink. I feel much better physically and mentally, and in a better position to make good decisions. I can now work my way down my list of things I have been meaning to do: go to bed early, waste less time on the internet, and to get back into shape. For the latter, I re-introduced my keto diet and started taking long walks every day. Anyway, thank you fellow TDPRI-ers. This is a welcoming place. I wish health and happiness to you all.
