Quiting may have been easier for me the second time , 20 years later, because the I had so much more mental and physical damage.
Plus the hangovers didn't go away until I drank again.
I still wake up feeling a bit hungover and thank God it isn't magnafied because of drinking.
When I crave I think of the next day after effects:
high blood pressure, sleep issues, strength loss, immune system compromise (sick).
BpSSS. My mantra.
Studied "alcohol kindling" and "alcohol PAWS."
Last intoxication: 8 May 15.
