In about half an hour, which will be more or less 5:30 PM Pacific Daylight Time, I will have 7293 days of sobriety. I was a professional drunk for somewhere around 25 years and quit on October 25, 1997, when I was 47. The day I quit I had no intention of doing so, or quitting tobacco use as well. I needed some minor surgery done, and the surgeon required a few days of sobriety and no smoking, so I agreed. When the surgery was over I had no desire for alcohol or a cigarette, so I left well enough alone and here I am just a few days shy of 20 years alcohol and tobacco free. What made my sobriety pain free was the pain drug the surgeon prescribed, Darvocet, which acts on both the opiate and nicotine receptors in the brain. It was a fluke that I had my sobriety handed to me on a silver platter, and I never looked back! I just wish everyone could have it as easy as I did, previously I had attempted to quit alcohol and failed miserably time after time, so I know how tough it is!
