Comment of the Week
“I quit drinking, years ago, by choice. At first, it felt weird to be around other people that were drinking–would they be judging me, think I’m self-righteous, etc. It didn’t take long to realize that no one really cared one way or the other. I was typically thinking only about myself, as were the others. Quitting is no big deal when you realize this.”
-I noticed the same thing when I abstained from alcohol for a long period some years ago, Randy.
