    I've done 30 days once. It was hard. I used to dream about drinking and breaking the streak. I had a 5 day streak going until last night. Turned down a beer earlier in the day and then that night just went to town on it. Drank myself crosseyed.

    I've stopped drinking for the most part. Certainly no crazy out of control drinking - the kind that makes me post stupid **** on here...I was at The Public House in Manhattan back in December and got pretty ****faced and went outside for a smoke (that's how you know I'm really drunk, I never touch cigarettes normally) and the bouncer wouldn't let me back in, saying I was too drunk. I flipped out on him...the other bouncers started to come over -- thankfully, my friends came out and pulled me away before they kicked the **** out of me. I got really lucky, I know I could have ended up in jail that night if a cop saw me.

    So I learned my lesson, and I haven't missed much. I have one or two beers when I go out with my friends on the weekends, and that's it. I've also lost over 50 pounds and I'm finally getting back in shape.

    I do miss those Jack and Cokes sometimes, but it was just something I had to do.

    What exactly is Xanax supposed to do for you? I tried it and all it did was put me to sleep.

    Many years ago, I went out with some friends and got hammered on vodka and decided that I wanted to get in a fight. Real dooshy move on my part and very unusual for me because I wasn't a fighter.

    I picked a fight with one guy and he backed down but the next guy took the bait. We started arguing and he took a swing at me. I moved out of the way and swung the hardest right hook I could.

    My friends still laugh to this day about how badly I missed.

    Anyway, the fight was on and I started kicking they guys ass. I don't remember too much but according to my friends, I landed 4 or 5 shots to his face and he dropped.

    Wish that was how the story ended...

    Unfortunately I do remember the next part rather well. I looked up to see 4 bouncers coming at me with fists loaded. I just put my arms up to ward off the beating they were about to inflict.

    They threw me out of the bar and I am pretty sure that when all was said and done, I got my ass kicked worse than the guy I fought.

    I quit vodka for a while after that.

    Careful, mint grows like wild fire.

    It's supposed to relax you, take the edge off just like valium, but I'm in the same boat as you; anything more than a half a pill knocks me out cold.

    So I've taken to having a scotch instead.

    Yeah, it will do that. It's an anti-anxiety pill- all it does is it takes the edge off, lets your mind relax a bit. Hence the sleep induction--although it's not a sleeping pill.

    I grow my herbs in pots, so shouldn't be an issue.
