I've not had a drink for nearly 48 hours, recently I went 3 days without alcohol. This might seem a no news day but being 'in the trade' and also your average social drinker I find it quite hard to avoid the stuff.
Do others have tales, they want to admit, about the longest time (forced or chosen) for not partaking or confess now if you haven't not had a drink for X years.
I went dry for three months a few years ago. I had thought I might give up drink completely and imagined that weekends would bea huge problem. In the event, it was hard for the first three or four days and then I didn't even miss the stuff. I found I slept much better, didn't feel tired all the time and found I could solve problems at work much more easily. I discovered that mornings were terrific.
I'm not quite sure why I went back on the drink. The first night back it tasted absolutely rank - especially whisky.
My better half acused me of being addicted to drink when we first got together. I stopped for 6 months to make the point that I wasn't. That was about 25 years ago. Fortunately I haven't had to reinforce the point.

I've been watching BBC News 24 why haven't I heard about this?
It is better to have drunk it all than never to have drunk at all.
