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 went 3 solid days without drinking this week. Went out drinking last night. Dont wanna drink again for another week. There are a few reasons for this, but quite frankly I'm tired of feeling like **** all the time. I feel like a champ when I don't drink. Probably gotta find a new drug to exploit....
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.

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.
