I am sure that you are right but unfortunately I don't have kids.
Now I am on day eleven without a single drop of alcohol.
Today I came here again because I had the desire to drink just a little bit.
I thought about that desire and rejected it from my brain.
I still have two virgin bottles of vodka in the basement. Persons here gave me the advice to pour it off. I didn't that. We have plenty of alcoholic beverage here for the guests so I can't trash everything. At the end this is not so difficult. Each day the desire to drink decreases a little bit. The thing that have motivated me the most is the fact that alcohol is hygroscopic and simply destroys the cell albumin and the so the cells dies. So this is a cell poison which destroys at each heavier drinking thousands of neurons.
So every time I am tempted to have a little drink I say to myself that I definitely don't need to drink poison. The association is made in my spirit between alcohol and poison. This is a vietnamese woman a zen Buddhist by the way who advised me to substitute the word cigarette and alcohol with the word poison when I am
taking the decision to intoxicate myself. I was a very good advice. No I can't thank her because she died two years ago.
