Quit day, alcohol: 7/20/18. Quit day, nicotine: 5/25/18. I have wasted SO much time hung over.

Well, your day is over at this point, hope you stayed sober and had a fantastic day with your son. nothing like AF mornings to make you realize that making yourself sick on purpose is easy to do without.
