    Didn’t participate , don’t have a problem .

    Had a single icy cold Heilmann’s Old Style last night - then went to bed.

    All those that needed to stop - and did ?

    Hangovers are the #1 reason I stopped drinking. Around my early 30's, I noticed the hangovers were getting more severe, and it took less alcohol to trigger them. They were literally an entire wasted day of pure torture. I don't miss it. I never had a problem with the actual alcohol itself, but it is no longer worth the suffering.

    One beer, a Coors Lite, just to be polite, a couple weeks ago. That was the first alcoholic anything since last September, when I stopped in support of a person close to me.

    first of all , congratulations on your extended vacation on the soft sandy beaches of sobriety,
    nice place to hang out, yeah. I was told that I could do anything for just one day and so it went,
    one day, one day, one day and suddenly one day turned into 37 years or 8 months or just today and I hope that those times that may occur, :rolleyes: when you feel like a piece of raw liver being pulled through a knot hole, not that you will , but I have, sometimes do and when IT happens I always ask, hungry, anger, lonely, tired, take a hot bath ,eat a tasty meal, with desert, you know treat myself well,
    listen to an H.P. Lovecraft audio book on the you-tube, and have a nice sleep and when I wake up, I always feel so much better.
    oh this is supposed to be about you , sorry I digress.
    Isn't the way it is:cool: better than the way it was:D, we share this in common.

    Well done, I'm impressed (says he with a glass of wine next to the laptop).

    This "situation" we're in doesn't help though and a couple of weeks ago my wife and I decided to start dieting and to stay away from alcohol on weeknights.

    I quit drinking on 4 December, and made it three and a half months until 15 March, when all the covid19 nonsense got me angry, and I started back up again.

    I have learned moderation though, and I must confess, it's a novel and desirable concept at this age.

    :)
