Back in 2005..something came over me and I was able to stop drinking with little cravings and no effort. I called it "The Gift". for me it was a gift from God.
I had drank all the years prior to that. I had drank from when I was 17 until I reached 41 in 2005.
Then I stopped in 2005 until 2014 (8 years).
Then sh*t hit the fan in my life...I quit a really good career..and I thought I could have a 6 pack...WRONG!
For the past 3 years I have been struggling and I have been in and out of the hospital due to my drinking. I have never had the feeling of the "gift" since 2005.
The last time I left the hospital was Oct 5th...only a month ago...and just last week..I fell and sprained my ankle very badly...and I was housebound and couch bound...and it came to my surprise that as depressed, anxious and sad as I was...I was not thinking of a drink.
ODD...So, then after that..it seemed every channel I put the TV on there was a "message" in whatever show I landed on....I really think that I have "The Gift" once again...and this time I am not letting it go!
Anyone who has stopped drinking for any period of time and have been doing well? Do NOT EVER...think it is ok to pick up a drink or think that things will just go back to normal after a drink...they don't...they may never..If you currently have "The Gift" cherish it!
