I was straightening up a drawer last week, and came across an old journal.
I have done a lot of reading about getting sober, staying sober, and moderation. Over and over I have read that if you try to moderate, it can take years to get back to Day 1 again.
It is true.
After this lame attempt at trying to quit drinking, I never tried again until 11/30/13.
That was 5 years later.
What a waste of time…
