    I kinda worried if I would be the same person (Identity) but I also was worried about proselytizing. I didn’t want to be the A hole running around telling if they had drank 1 beer in the past 10 years they were alcoholics.

    It turned out the contrast between drunk and sober me was highly visible. I never told anyone to quit drinking but the wives and other concerned people, after seeing my change, were quick to tell their husbands they could change if they wanted. The excuses were gone, if someone like me could do it than anyone could. Some people kind of avoided me because of this.
