WHOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO on everyones sobriety... I only wish some ppl would realize that DRINKING AND DRIVING do not mix... For the safety of yourself and others.. I pray and hope to GOD that someone reads this and realizes that there is so much more to life out there then DRINKING their life away.. Would be such a happier home and life,.. Well anyway.. CONGRATS TO ALL AND CONTINUE THE WAY YOU ARE AND BE VERY VERY PROUD OF YOURSELVES..
I so missed that cold beer in the summer , at the end of a long hot day ,after breathing in saw dust and wood chips all day...you know, the kinda thirst that only a cold cold beer can cut through...well guess what???, there are incredible non alcoholic beers avaiulable these days, and just for me, they do NOT trigger the desire to get drunk, they just taste good and cut thirst!!!!!
I know that I hardly ever drew a sober breath for years.Couldn't understand why people wouldn't ride with me after I had drank all day and would cover both sides of the road.Had friends pull plug wires,let me kick for ever.Good thing they did.Now days I very seldom drink and if I do I won't even get in a cage to drive.
I have been known to be to drunk to drive everytime i got on my bike and had a wreck with no one but me to blame lucky the state trooper did not give me a test stayed in the hosp. for 3 weeks and out of work for 3 months i wasn't thinking straight back and i had 2 little kids and a wife i put the family through a bad time no med.insurance back then no money coming in either I stayed off a bike from 1976 till now I'm so glad i don't drink anymore.What was i thinking back then i guess i wasn't I'M FREE.
