good bye ol friend


this is called a black and tan.
it is one of my favorite beer drinks.
this particular one I made my self as I often did.
no more .
I have not had any beer for about two weeks now give or take a couple of days.
no I am not an alcoholic but I do feel that it was a habit. and that habit up until now was not causing a problem.
so I say good bye to my beer.
I shall miss it just like i still miss smoking. yes I am one of those weird ones that actually enjoyed smoking, but because of health and mostly money I don't smoke either, so the same goes for my beer, health and money once again win. MMMRRRRPPPH!
now I drink herbal tea in the evenings......... I am soooooooo OLD!
WHAAAA! 40 here I come!

I've never been a smoker or a lover of beer, but I know it's difficult to stop those things you enjoy, but aren't good for you. I should do the same with sugar. That has been a weakness of mine since as far back as I can remember. (yes, this is the Dental Hygienist speaking) If only veggies tasted that good to snack on...

yeah...it's tough. Good for you though!

(I have a terrible sweet tooth too)

More prayers for you. Giving up those things we love it too hard without help from God.

Sugar... yeah, I've been thinking of giving that up for way too long. Even when I set my mind to it, it keeps showing up where I don't want it.

Congrats! March 12th was two years for not smoking, very proud of you. I know this is a tough time for you and giving up your last "vice" is paving the way to a better future I hope. My grandma told me; "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones." Personally, my forties were my best years!
