Oh I can identify. During my last run, I thought I'd had it under control. I wouldn't touch a drop Monday through Friday. But after Friday night's afternoon shift, I'd go hard until Sunday night. A co-worker of mine would do the same. He would be so tore up, that when I'd pick him up for Monday's afternoon shift, he'd be shaking VIOLENTLY. And he is only 24 years old! I'd say, "Jon man, are you really sure you're okay to work?" And he'd reply, "Yeah man, I just took a benzo, the shakes will go away."


...............................So................. ....

The moral of the story is this: Binge drinking can be just as harmful, if not WORSE than daily drinking. I always remember one thing: It's not the amount of alcohol we drank, it's the EFFECT it had on us!

Anyhow, I wish you the best of luck in your recovery. You come around here quite a bit, and you'll get the swing of being sober. Just keep coming back!
