Man reaches 100th day of thinking about going teetotal

A MAN has reached the milestone of 100 days of considering quitting drinking.

Tom Logan first thought about cutting out booze completely after awaking in a pool of vomit on the kitchen floor in July. Since then he has managed not to go a single day without resolving to go on the wagon permanently. 

Logan said: “I always say ‘take it one day at a time’. I know that at any moment I could weaken and admit to myself I am a hopeless drunk, but I’m not going to do that.

“Finding a strength I never thought I had, and perhaps with help from a higher power, I’ve stayed strong and told myself that tomorrow, or perhaps the day after, is the day I quit alcohol for good.

“I’m not saying it has been easy. Along the way I have experienced many pangs, often due to raging hangovers. 

“But those hangovers were worth it, because they bolstered my resolve to say, now is the time, well not now, but maybe some time this month, for me to kick the booze.”

He added: “I couldn’t have done it without the support of my partner Susan. Whenever I say ‘This is my last can of lager’ she’s always given me words of encouragement like ‘Yeah. Right’.”
