A Message from 1970
An old promise to a friend helped him see the true nature of his alcoholism
New Years Eve, 2008
I celebrated as I usually did: I got drunk and passed out before midnight and then avoided my wife the following morning.
I was full of remorse and once again, made the vow to quit. Thirty-eight years of drinking had not served me well. My wife gave me an ultimatum to leave. I was willing to trade family, home and the few friends I had for a cheap apartment and some time to drink myself into oblivion.
Even when faced with life's most difficult challenges, she was able to stay sober
