I recently turned 40 and am a husband and father of two precious children. Daughter is 4 and my son is almost 3. By all accounts I live a successful life. Great job and family. But deep down, I know that alcohol has no place in my life. It has shown its ugly face in different ways for me throughout my life. I don't go out with buds and drink to excess anymore but it has shifted to too many glasses of wine or too many beers at home with my wife and after she goes up to bed. Because I'm not "mean" or completely irresponsible when I drink, I don't have people expressing their concern. This actually adds a level of difficulty for me because I can easily convince myself that it's all good for me! Then, I wake up at 4am with an anxious feeling and know that I just don't want it in my life anymore! Don't want my kids to ever see me drunk like a Teenager.
