I was drunk every day from when I was 15 until I was 22. The few days I was not drunk it was because I was on something that made alcohol irrelevant. Now at 51 I have not had a drink with alcohol for about seven years and for about seven years before that I would have an occasional beer or shot but I never got drunk. It has been almost fifteen years since I have been drunk. I found that alcohol just didn't fix my problems, it tended to make them worse. I started not to like the way the alcohol made me feel physically so I gradually just stopped drinking it all together. I have no desire to drink at all any more. About two and a half months ago I stopped smoking cigarettes after smoking every day for 36 years. As time goes on my craving for cigarettes seems to get stronger but less frequent. I have quit cocaine, alcohol, speed, and other drugs and tobacco is the hardest thing I have ever quit, but I quit them cold turkey on a spur of the moment decision. I just woke up one morning and that was it, I gave my cigarettes away and didn't buy any more. If I don't have them I can't smoke them, right?
