In 1994

Back in the year 1993, I changed jobs and relocated to another state from where I was dispatched.  I had become a Truck Driver and offered a flatbed service countrywide. I really enjoyed the profession and eventually owned my own truck.  After many years of enjoying a few drinks occasionally, I woke up one morning and decided enough was enough so I quit drinking in 1994.  Of course, I did not know that my days of being sick was about to begin.  I would still go out to eat with friends, they would have a drink and I would drink something else, maybe a diet coke, or ice tea.  I guess it could be said that I was a teetotaler practicing the life of teetotalism.   I have never judged or criticized anyone for enjoying a drink and would never, I do know of some that do.  I am sad to say that I once helped in the encouragement of a friend to quit drinking and he quit on a Saturday, hospital on Monday and passed on Friday.  I quit because I wanted to and really needed to in order to do the job that I was doing.  This tea is for you.
