I have been sober since 3/23/09. I quit cold turkey. I came home that day and dumped all the alcohol in my house down the drain. It was very important to me to ceremoniously dispose of it. I have been tempted many times, often I wanted it so bad I could taste it. I have a wonderful support system that helps me resist that urge. I have family that still drink, that have pressured me to drink. I've held a bloody Mary in my hands, and threw it away. I've endured taunts from a family member telling me they liked me better when I was drinking. Tonight a family member brought vodka and whiskey into my home, and I not only abstained, but had no desire to partake. It was quite a personal victory.
