    I'm sitting here with a wine induced glow that hasn't happened since 1989 when I quit. Now before you all come running to my salvation, I feel different this time. I have none of the guilt, none of the hate, just a peace and a glow,,,,,,so am I wrong?............................Keithicon_cool.gif

    PS you're big boy, and I feel pretty confidant that you know your limits.

    Funny, I originally wrote "vintage" and then edited it to "label."

    BTW, you know I did send those additional Florida pics to you some 12 hours ago?

    Yep. I'm waiting for Bill to sit still for more than 5 minutes (its been a busy day) so I can open them up like xmas presents. He keeps flying into the den, looking at posts and making remarks (which I dutifully add) then leaving.

    I have a rope and wheeled desk chair awaiting him.

    What do you mean by a "wine induced glow"? pardon my ignorance!

    Oh O.K!! I kinda of like the sound of it too! I mean I always loooove a good glass of wine everyday after dinner, I picked on this habit early on in my teens when I lived in Europe!! but hey I am glad someone is sharing and spreading some positive vibes on the forum.

    Just curious, why did you quit back in 1989?

    As long as you can enjoy alcohol in moderation, there isn't anything wrong with it in my opinion.

    Now the really important question - was it red or white? icon_smile.gif

    Keith,
    Being new here I can not pretend to know the extent of your situation, and do not hold any judgments. My father was an alcoholic, and I have done some really irresponsible things while drinking too. I would only express my concern that enjoying a glass here and there does not evolve into drinking heavily; Then becoming an issue.
    You seem like a very nice man and I'm sure many of us on RJ would hate for this to lead to an unhealthy path.You are the only one who has control of the situation, I would just ask to please be smart when making your decisions.
    Best regards,

    -Matt

    Same battle. Pick a new birthday, talk to your sponsor, and hit some meetings. There's quite a few people in recovery on RJ (I'm not one of them, but I talk with people from all walks of life).

    Good luck.
