One of the benefits to quitting alcohol that I'd never have expected is that it has improved my overall impulse control. When I consider my old drinking habits, much of it was based on simply impulse.
With today being my birthday, I feel it's as good a time as any to reflect on the past five months since I quit drinking alcohol and consider what lies ahead. At face value, my life is amazing. I have so much to be grateful for. Healthy happy kids, great job, wonderful family, good health, amazing man in my life... the list could go on.
