This is neither a resolution nor a promise nor a story about hitting ‘rock bottom’. I’ve seen several of these stories lately. Sometimes, sobriety authors include a picture from their past life — you know, drunk, passed out, or looking unhealthy.

No, this is not that kind of a story. I’ve not been drunk in many years. I can’t imagine drinking to any excessive degree, however, you define “excessive”. For me, it’s jeopardizing the quality of my running, which I love passionately and do every day.
