I Quit Alcohol: What being the child of an alcoholic teaches you

I Quit Alcohol: What being the child of an alcoholic teaches you

My Dad drank himself to death and finally succumbed to liver cirrhosis 8 years ago.  I went to his funeral, drank his last bottle of whiskey, danced on the bar, fell into a ditch, and missed my flight home.  Iā€™m sure even he would have been proud of that final performance. And on my arrival home, I vowed that it was the last time I would touch alcohol.  And it was.

This is the story of why I quit alcohol and how I did it.  My hope is that by sharing my story, I can help someone else rewrite theirs.
