Three Years. 

Today marks three years to the day since I moved out to Hawaii and started my life on a different path.  And while the past year has been a very difficult one, I harbor no illusions, I know that it could be so much worse.  So, that strong urge to drown myself in two fifths of bourbon the other night?  Yeah, you know the one.  I decided that perhaps that might not be the solution that I was looking for, so I didn’t do it.

Against my better judgment.

Though, today I’m glad I didn’t.

No bourbon, just coffee.

I can’t think that’d be your drink anyway. :)

you’d be wrong. ‘course there wasn’t too much that ol gramps wouldn’t drown himself in…..bourbon just lets you KNOW you’re doing something terrible to your system RIGHT NOW.
fightin’ your genetic coding is a hell of a dog fight though. go bang a brown chick….it’ll make you feel better in the morning.
little different than the jd.
i’ll do one for you and you do one for me. but to be fair…..
i gotta find a brown nipple for my bottle first.

Wait, you mean that you’re glad that you didn’t go out (or stay in), pour poison into your body until your brain turned off & made your body revolt against itself only to wake up in a questionable position feeling like you’re a barely walking corpse & your mind racked with guilt about what you may or may not have done?

Good job, my friend. You’re doing much better than you think you are.

Congratulations. Frankly, it seems you finally got in touch with your better judgment than faught against it.

3 years down, 50 to go!

Wow, Gramps. Three minutes without a nip is an eternity for me. I’m proud of you, dude. Keep up the hard work.
