As a recovering alcoholic, I can only underscore the new freedom you will find if you keep going along your non-drinking path. It sounds like you are doing the right thing even though you find it “easy”. Robin Williams once said that when he got off drugs he found that he was “the same asshole I was before, only with less dents in my car”. That pretty well sums up what your new life will become with the added need to buy some new clothes for the svelter you. Congratulations!
