It's great feeling empowered, suddenly our personal strength unleashed to steer the course. Great it happened for you in your 30's and maybe the next decade hanging close was the inspiration. I cannot pinpoint a milestone other than a beautiful day unfolding and me feeling horrible once again, a nagging pain in my knee that seemed to be triggered by excess alcohol and this very strong sense that I was blithely choosing to sabotage everything good in my life for something as stupid as a whole bunch of wine. I made up my mind to quit and never drink again. I don't know how this repressed human being got out from The Fog, but I did and I feel strong and wonderfully alive.
