DANG YOU you beat me to it lol.

I was going to post it but been depressed for a few weeks and was waiting till I got over myself lol.


If i've learned anything its that every day is a new day and each day I get to start the good fight all over again. Quiting drinking wasnt something I just did 5 years ago and moved on. Its something I do each day all over again. But in so doing the rest of my life has improved etc..

yeah I quit smoking January of 2012 and changed my diet and started excercising. MAINLY because after quiting drinking alone for 6 months I still did not feel that great to be honest. So I figured I better take the next steps and fix up my diet quit the smoking and loose the weight etc.. I really started to feel better after I did that.

I think it was easier ofr me then some just because I dont moderate well lol obviously so I was kinda ALL IN with these changes. and I obsessed over it etc.. But it paid off.

I am the same way zjw- all in or all out. I do not fare well with a little of this and a little of that. It is easier for me knowing that I can never have a thing than to know I can have a little of it sometimes. It's just how it works.

Again, you have done an amazing job
