It's been one year since I stopped drinking. (Okay, plus one day) No, it's not hard... I rarely even drink alcohol-free beer any more. In some sense I'm proud of myself, but in another, I do realize that it's just 365 days.
The only thing about it that is really annoying is that many people who find out that you're not drinking any more say something in the lines that they admire it (mostly likely a lie) and that they couldn't do it themselves. Duh! Do these people ever think that I don't do this for fun, but because I have to? You don't have to because you can stop when you feel it's too much. Guess who is in the better position? A hint: it's not me.
I obviously never tell them that... I just nod, and say nothing. It would be better if they did the same thing.
