I’m doing great, and God knows I never would have lived this long if I had kept drinking. Those days when you feel like you’ve given up, that your life has no purpose, that you just don’t want to go on? They pass. Hallelujah! Brother, I was at the end of my life 2500 days ago.
I’ve completely changed my life – my job, my outlook on who I am, what makes me happy, and I’ve got a phenomenal relationship with my wife and kids. You remember them, right? The ones I just didn’t care about and was ready to, literally, drink myself to death. I can’t believe I’m the same person.
You can stop. Just don’t drink today. One day I’ll come here and pen a longer narrative about what’s happening in my life, yet the important part is I’ve forgiven myself for being such a dick in all aspects of my life. Change is hard, yet the joy I have in my life now is simply amazing. I’ve got a daughter in college now (she’s doing great!), a son who is a 10th grader, and a fantastic relationship with my wife. What more could a man want?
