It appears that quiting and then drinking is a pattern. What are you going to do differant this time? What is your plan to stay sober?

Good luck Copperfield! Though I always feel a bit funny about saying that, like drinking or not is merely a matter of chance... You have the strength to stay sober, just don't be afraid to ask for help if and when you need it x

Way to go copperfield!
