Thanks Nancy L. I appreciate the kind words. Every day is a beautiful day! Actually i don’t watch football anymore. I used to be fanatical about the sport but that was many years back.
You see Nancy L, I used drink a pint of Smirnoff every night when I was in business. Seemed to be the only way I could get the business off my mind and get to sleep for a few hours. At least that’s what I use to tell my self, I now know that was just an excuse. Since I was working seven days a week I was drinking seven days a week. .
But, after years of drinking I started to feel the effects of it and realized that If I did not stop I would probably be dead in a year. So, I gave it up. Wasn’t easy, but once I set my mind to something I’m pretty good at following through.
That was 21 years ago and I’ve been sober ever sense. So why did I tell you (and the world) this?
Simple, I found that many of the things I was so passionate about were directly tied to drinking, football was one of them. So, when I quit drinking I also lost the passion for football.
It took several years but little by little I developed new passions that had nothing to do with drinking. E-scrap is one of those passions.
Poetry is another one of my passions and around 12 years back I had a book of poems published. Mistake I made was choosing the wrong publisher who screwed me (and several other authors) over royally! Took a class action suit to finally get the rights to my book back.
Anyway, thanks again for you kind words and I hope you have a fantastic week!
