    Thx MB , both of us were married before so the 2nd time around is a charm. We were married in Grand Cayman and what are the odds Hurricane Gordon was heading our way and 2 days before it changed course enough to miss us. Early in our marriage we did a lot of Scuba diving in the Caribbean and Grand Cayman was our favorite diving destination.

At first for me it was tough but I made a commitment to myself to do whatever it took to stay sober. I could do one day at a time . A good friend once said to me There is no future in the past.
    And the same to you, great work!

    I have two older brothers that are recovering alcoholics.

    The older of the two is a double amputee. He lost both legs in a car fire. A Nova non the less.
    He's 60 now and lost them when he was 23.

    Anyway, one day after drinking for several days, my dad asked him " think you can help me with ( some project )

    Always willing to help he said yes, give me a minute. Went to the ice box and popped a cold one. He said " I took one sip and thought " this is stupid!" Put the drink down and never pick one up again.

    My other brother had a complete break down. The alcohol had finally got the best of him and it was rehab or jail. The sheriff here told him that.

    He chose rehab. He then attended AA.

    He once said " I know I have another drunk in me but I don't think I have another sober ! "

    They've both been sober for over 25 years.

    As said before... keep up the good fight guys!
