New Year's Resolutions (1-b)

My second resolution, that I also make year in and year out, was to give up drinking. I that one for almost three and a half hours. And I could have kept it a little longer if it hadn't been that four-mile walk in the rain through drunken crowds. I was carrying my six-year-old son on my shoulders the time and I'd never left the house.

the time we made it home, I could stand up. Every muscle in my body hurt and if there ever was a time I deserved a , this was it. Once I put my son to bed I started looking for some to cheer myself up.

Then I remembered that a friend had given me a bottle of whisky for Christmas. What a wonderful , I thought, and straight for the fridge. That's how my second resolution got broken and I enjoyed every of it.
