Not a lot I know but after many years drunk it seem's strange more than anything else.

My consultant has advised I never drink again. This seem's the hardest thing to grasp for me. It seem's to say I'm weak and can't have alcohol in my life. I know I need to take it one day at a time but part of me can't settle with the thought of never drinking again.

If you keep it in the day you can.
When I left the rehab I remember walking up to the house on a nice April day and the thought came to: The rest of my life? Beyond comprehension and I paid the price. Over and Over. So I thought, 'what have I got to lose?'
I tried.I'm sober today, still visiting from Uranus,and tomorrow is another day.

Great job! The early times are indeed the hardest but don't allow yourself to become complacient eithter. I woudl have to think about it but off the top of my head I think it's been seven years for me.

The problem I had was I could say no to alcohol nine times out of ten but that tenth time... I wouldn't be able to stop. Friends would tell me I didn't have a problem and that was easy for me to believe but I know I'm better off without it.

Good work man.
