Re: I gave up the drink
When I worked, I had a 'drinking problem', too. My job was often very frustrating, and I had to patiently put up with a lot of BS with a smile on my face. I tolerated it by promising myself a big glass of bourbon (or vodka) when I got home. By the time I got home, fixed dinner, read the mail, mowed the yard, paid bills, etc. it was time for bed. Then I realized I had forgotten about that drink.
Now that I am retired (with a seven-figure retirement account) I am making up for it.
