Yes, I'm still kicking, guys, and I do appeciate your support. No, I haven't quit yet, as the fact of the matter is I like beer. I used to do another, umm, mind altering substance regularly, but it is difficult to come by these days, so I simply substituted alcohol for it. Believe me, I'd MUCH rather smoke pot than drink, but I don't live in a state that has decriminalized it. I find it all rather ironic, as marijuana is relatively healthier for you than drinking all the time. I don't want to get into a debate about it, as I'd like to keep my membership active in this forum.
I haven't posted much simply because I'm working 10-hour days for now, and I have little time for anything else except trying to get some rest.
However, I find it interesting that in the last 10 years, the number of people who require medical care for depression, anxiety and various addictions has increased by 40%. I've simply become a statistic. This was reported on NPR earlier today.
