It kind of sucks being a firefighter who can’t drink alcoholic beverages. On second thought, it doesn’t suck at all! What really sucked was being a firefighter who had to sneak, hide, lie, pretend, and be a slave to a chemical.
Getting sober was the smartest thing I ever did. Fourteen years in a couple of weeks. Here’s an article I wrote for American Addiction Centers. If you need help, don’t be afraid to ask, my e-mail in around here somewhere.
Best of luck to all, and stay safe, and sober if you’re like me.
