I would of posted on the ninth (the eighth anniversary of my sobriety), but, it's tax time. I don't know how I manage to get through tax time in 1997? I guess, it was because, I took one day at a time, and kept very busy. I can still remember the withdrawal period. It felt as if that hangover was never going to end, but it did.Since I decided to lead a sober life on February 9, 1997, I've noticed my stomach problems have become more manageable. My acid reflux disease is less of a problem, I now drink two cups of Cubita (cuban coffee) every morning, and I really enjoy it! I can eat some foods that I gave up twenty years. It feels great to get up in the morning with out a hangover! The only thing I miss about my drinking days is having a congac with my Havana, but, I still enjoy smoking my Havanas (one per week and on special occasions-such as the anniversary of my sobriety).I just got my year's supply of cigars last week on sale, how's that for being foolish?When I decided to quit drinking, I actually simplified my life. No more hangovers. No more alcoholic blackouts. No more excuses for my behavior on the previous night. I don't have to try to figure out why that young lady is smiling at me, or biting my ear. I am now able to remember what I did or did not do, last night.Joe(Eight years and a few days sober, and enjoying every minute of it.)
