I’ve just got around to giving up drinking and I find that I like it. I like it more than I do drinking – for the moment at least. I’ve gone past the 100 day mark and it feels like the momentum is with me. I’ve been drinking pretty solidly since 1983 so this new path is a change to say the least.
In 2011 I quit my job, sold all my possessions and hit the road. It’s been good (if not a little disorganised) but I need to start thinking now about a more coherent plan for what the hell comes next. Getting sober is definitely a helpful start. I think that might have been the plan all along but I don’t always get the memos.
