Yeah being sober sucks, it's like someone rubbing sandpaper or dragging fingernails on a chalkboard, anyone telling you different is in denial or possibly an alien.
But if you value your life or long term health you'll have to face that chalkboard sometime.
I've been (for the most part secretly) abusing alcohol for 10+ years & though it's been a good run, the negatives are starting to outweigh the benefits, mentally paranoia alone seems to have gone through the roof in the last year, (been reading up alcohol related psychosis is a thing <a href="http://www.socialanxietysupport.com/forum/images/smilies/shake.gif" border="0" alt="" title="" >:-)</a>)..that's not good, thinking back the longest I've been completely sober in the last 5 years has been 1 week, I'm currently at that mark & gonna try to keep it going.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. - Macbeth
