Absolutely agree Hevyn, I managed to do this once before, long ago in college. Went as long as a year without a drink and it ended up being the year I accomplished the most in school. Took about a month before people understood that I was not gonna drink. It was also a time when I discovered how much I like mornings, clear headed mornings. I lived with my siblings then and I watched my brother stay in bed until late morning every Sat and Sun...he drinks daily to this day.

So last night, my guest came back from the dinner with a six pack. This was after I posted here last night. I've seen him drink hard for so many years (oh, I was ok, nothing for me).

But as it hits 08:00 here on the east coast it's been 24 hours since I woke up from my awful night. I'm in a better place right now physically and mentally. And you all are a big reason for that.
