“Sometimes when I reflect back on all the wine I drink
I feel shame. Then I look into the glass and think
about the workers in the vineyards and all of their hopes
and dreams .. If I didn’t drink this wine, they might be out
of work and their dreams would be shattered.
Then I say to myself, “It is better that I drink this wine and let their
dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.”

~ Jack Handy

I’m cold turkey. I’ve decided to stop drinking alcohol and take care of my health. It all came to a head yesterday, when I refused point blank to drive home from Chef’s parents house. I wanted to drink so badly, that when we arrived home, I rang the AA for help.
