"Do your best to enjoy life. I'm trying to do my best to have a better life than I had before. See, I'm a recovering alcoholic. I quit drinking in '97. I don't think about it a lot, but some days, even with 20 years, you still have them days. See, I already know. I done proved it to myself time and time again. Whatever the situation is, a drink ain't gonna make it no better. If anything, whatever the situation is, a drink is gonna make it worse. For a person like myself, I'm a stone cold alcoholic. All it takes is one and I'd be off like a rocket. I used to come to you drinking then pass out drinking. That was me.   Take and make the most of everyday. Be thankful and grateful to God that you made it another day." - Tom, Portland
