Why did you post that fact?
Why are you keeping vodka in a freezer?

That’s where I keep it, odd perhaps but I like it kept cold.

Hope this answers your question.

Pour it down the drain, if you truly want to get sober.

What is stopped you? Why have you posted here? Obviously there is some reason why you feel stopping is a good idea? Where do your priorities stand!

He/she might be a normal drinker, in which case, vodka in the freezer is great. But for most of us here (and so-called normies, too, if they want to be honest), it only leads to insanity, death, unemployment and homelessness, not always in that order.
I'm just glad I was able to get off the crazy train.

Please pour it out.

This is your day 1, you don't need a bottle of booze in your freezer.

Hi RedTidal

I know how hard it is to quit when there's still something in the house.

I'm sure others here have had that experience too.

You'll find understanding help and support here.

The best thing you can do is dump the vodka.

Make a definitive statement. Consider it the first investment in your sober life

There's no reason to wait to start the life you want.

Make it Day One...definitely

D
