      I had to give up drinking when I became ill about 10 years ago. Prior to this, my husband and I had a wine cellar and loved having wine with dinner and parties. It was really difficult to give it up - food didn’t taste as good, sunsets lacked vivid colors, celebrations weren’t as festive. But after about 3 months, I lost my craving for it and years later never really returned to it. What was as difficult as abstinence was the reactions of my family and friends. They seemed totally uneasy with me not “joining” them, as if I was now a different person. I found that people who love to drink find it difficult when the person they are with doesn’t join them.
