I remember the night like it happened yesterday.
It was the summer of 2003 and I was on the top-deck of a famous London double-decker bus after a long night of drinking.
Without warning… I suddenly felt VERY sick to my stomach.
I raced to the bottom of the bus to get off as quickly as I could.
Unfortunately, I didn’t make it and I ended up vomiting all over the bus!
I still remember the look of disgust on the faces of the passengers.
It was THE MOST Humiliating Night of My Life!
I remember waking up the next morning feeling completely ashamed and embarrassed about what happened the night before.
It was at that point I realized that if I didn’t stop or at least control my drinking… my life would continue to be a mess or even get worse!
The problem was, I couldn’t afford to pay for expensive counseling. And I refused to go to AA because I didn’t want to label myself an alcoholic.
So I went on a personal mission and spent a ton of time at the library… reading every single book I could find on how to stop drinking.
Through a lot of research and desperate searching, I was able to find 5 different experts who gave me techniques I used to quit drinking.
Through a ton of trial and error; including several relapses because of heavy peer pressure…
