    I got 4 years off the juice in a week. The time has flown by. I thought it would be hard. Life is not always easy but not drinking has been. I averaged at least 15 beers per day from age 21 to 34. Only days I did not drink were the 2 times I finished 100 mile races (out of several more attempts) because it took longer than 24 hours (and you can guess what I was doing right when I finished!) Was waking up everyday with the shakes and severe anxiety…blah blah blah same shit different person.
    I quit cold turkey with the goal of making it a week or so to dry out. After the first 3 days of shaking no sleeping and other bad shit I began to feel so much better I lost my desire to drink. I’ve thought a lot about whether alcoholism or OCD is a more proper description and I’m inclined to believe it’s the latter for the simple reasons that 1) I have had zero desire and to the contrary, great fear of ever having that substance in my system and going into that spot in the mind that won’t let me stop, and 2) the OCD is stronger than ever (I run everyday 10k minimum) Interesting to think about what makes us tick. Keep up the good work!

    I’m sorry you haven’t had a good week. Things will get better. Hugs to you (and Sam), it takes a lot of strength to do what you have done (and haven’t done). You guys are strong.
