The Perfect Interview

Bottle down, tie on, all ready to go. He was going to get this job. He just knew it. So why was everyone staring at him?

The pressure of job interviews can make one do unexpected things. In my case, for a very important interview, I stopped drinking. It wasn’t my first attempt to stop, nor did I expect it to be my last. I had tried counseling, rehab and seemingly every medication there is to stop drinking. I even sat in AA meetings for a while. Nothing worked, so I gave up trying.

But for this perfect job, I was willing to stay sober for a couple of days to knock out the perfect job interview.
