Just read some posts in the guest book and the posts below concerning alcohol. The question was asked if anyone ever felt like a social reject because they stopped drinking.
I was a beer drinker for many years. I was either drinking, drunk or hung over all the time. In 1985 I went into what was probably my worst ever cluster period.
On Valentines Day that year I quit. It took about a week to get the crap out of my system and then something wonderful happened. I was completely sober. I was amazed how great it felt. I felt so good that I've stayed sober for the last 16 years and I'm still amazed how good it feels to wake up in the mornings without a hangover.
Social reject? Nope! I learned I don't need a drink in my hand to be social.
I also learned you can't out-drink a cluster headache….it can't be done, there's not enough alcohol in the world.
I know, I know……….there's nothing worse than a reformed drunk preaching. I have nothing against drinking, it's just not for me.
Note: I'm just rambling on, hoping it'll push some of the nasty crap off the bottom on the page before the new year begins.
