its simply become less of a problem,and more of a joy
i dont get in the states i used too
i never harm,abuse or piss off other people
and the big blackouts dont happen,events get a bit hazy toward the end of the night but the days of raging around doing all sorts of things and not remembering are gone
im harmless and fall asleep long before i can consume enough alcohol to cause problems
so im happy with this scenario,the circumstances of my life allow it
no significant other looking on,wishing things were different
happy working life,i teach others my trade and thats a buzz.
