I noticed your last post and I was just wondering... What is it exactly that stops you from doing that? Slamming down a whole bunch of ciders or even just one? What is the catalyst for wanting to be sober. I have been following your blog and I guess that I have an idea as to why but just wanted to ask.

Sober, and then what? Answer:

The reason for stopping is because I can’t stop at just one. As a result this effects my work life, my relationships and it wreaks havoc on my mental health.

What stops me from slamming down drinks? The fact I’ve stopped and started a few times means that I now know how bad it gets and how bad it feels… So, knowing that I never want to go there again is strength enough to not reach for the bottle.
