The Shrinking Elephant.

Last May I finally acknowledged the gigantic elephant in the room: I’m an alcoholic. Today I'm sober for one year.

There’s a lot I could say about quitting drinking…like:

  1. You don’t have to drink “a lot” to be alcoholicle. 
  2. There’s a world of difference between stopping and quitting
  3. Naming the beast was half the job. 
  4. You can quit for your family, but it’s far better to quit for your self. 
  5. Drinking was harder than not drinking. 
  6. Some friendships evaporate, others solidify. 
  7. Chocolate helps. 
  8. Living without headaches and hangovers is soooooo great.
  9. Sex is a million times better.
  10. I can still swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier. 

Yeah, there's a lot I could say. But tonight, right now, all I want to do is bask in the glow.
