Wow-been awhile


I just wanted to jump in and do a quick update. I've passed my 1 year mark since I quit cold turkey. My life is 100% better without alcohol. My wife and I are expecting our first baby in June. I can honestly say it was hard work but so so worth the life I have right now.

My hard work was staying sober. I could have drank many times over this past year but I chose not to. I've read books and have support from my family and friends. Quitting cold turkey isn't easy.
