    Little did I realize it was ever a problem. I always drank in the evening after work, was responsible about it (wouldn't drive), and cut the drinking off in time for a good night's rest so I could function properly the next day...no hangovers or shakes.

    Back in November 2013 I quit for two months to lose some weight, since I'd gained 20 lbs. I started drinking again in January when my weight was back under control. Over the next couple months, a chain of events occurred that brought me to the realization that I shouldn't drink at all...not even a little bit.

    It turns out that the active/extreme lifestyle I enjoy is easily harmed by drinking. I love riding my bicycle and doing stunts. When under the influence of alcohol, it seems the stunts are easier. Now, with a permanently pinched nerve in my neck from a face plant off a high jump, I've decided that maybe that wasn't such a good idea after all. So it came down to a choice of which dangerous habit to keep: Alcohol, or being crazy on a bike. I chose the latter.
