After four(4) recording attempts, I finally made it through an entire episode without crying! I talk, briefly, about my experience with racism and I give my take on the current state of chaos in our nation.
At over 120 days sober, I took some time off from work and found myself obsessing about booze. (Apologies for the neighbor's dog barking in the background. I recorded this episode several times and I think the dogs knew it--because they were completely silent during editing. Bastards!)
On January 5th, I decided to go one full year without alcohol. Today I'll explain how I made this decision; how I'm handling this new way of living, and what I miss and don't miss about drinking now that I'm over 100 days sober.
