“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count, but the life in your years!” Abe Lincoln

Don’t waste your time looking back on what you’ve lost. Move on,
for life is not meant to be traveled backwards.

Until next time…
Onwards and Upwards!

    Good points Kevin! I especially like your insight on boredom and alcohol. If we keep doing the same activities time after time, we naturally will be looking to make them more interesting, and often adding more alcohol is the outcome. It is good to have a game plan when getting together in the same old familiar spots and with the same friends. As much as you love your old friends, there are always different activities you can do with them so you don’t need to “enhance” your time together with alcohol.

    Affectionately known now as the rambling rambler- Jokes aside you are very accessible to lots of people and I find your pod casts make comimg to terms with an alchohol issue as achieivable rather than this life long battle that AA present. For some people with a major issue then to be fair maybe it is. So many people are out thre like me who can be helped before it develops into something more serious. Keep em comimg and keep rambling Kevin – Keeps me on track

    I will be honest and say I was worried I would be less fun to be around if not drinking…turns out according to my friends this is not the case! I drank a lot on my own…I had to address why I was doing this so I could quit. Drinking was a way of masking my fears and doubts…addressing these has made quitting possible. Great advice as usual…I did drink because I was bored too…hadn’t thought about this till you mentioned it.

    My fear about changing my circumstances and quitting the drink, is that I spend those bad habits with my father. My father is a judge who is well respected & loved by many in the community. I feel that if I stop drinking with the ol’man he will realize I have a problem and lose respect for me.. I’m currently in medical school & when we get together I’m usually hung over for two days. These hangovers are so bad that i cant concentrate enough on my studies. I fear that all this drinking will ruin medical school for me but, I also don’t want to hurt my relationship with my father. Sometimes I think of transferring to another med school, far from home. But I didn’t begin to excel in school until I moved back closer to home. I like your philosophy but I’m just Not sure what to do.

      You don’t have to put it like you have a problem. Tell him you’ve been reading about what alcohol does to your body and you’re not going to drink it any more. You can tell him that it’s part of many changes you are making for your present and future health. It doesn’t have to be an alcohol issue.
