Inacage Bassist Celebrates Two Years Of Sobriety
Bassist Anthony Pereda of California metal band Inacage has issued the following statement about reaching two years of sobriety:
"I'm proud and thankful to say that today I have been sober for 2 years straight. After drinking for 15 it seemed like the chances of quitting for good were unlikely considering how much I love alcohol! lol.
"I still do! NA beer is nice because I love the taste! Clausthaler from Germany is my favorite! Miss the awesome micro brews though. Ha! However, there isn't a substitute for wine. Uh....grape juice doesn't do the trick. A glass of Merlot would be nice. OR A SHOT OF JACK! )=o)
"The first year was brutal! The 2nd was easy! I find it a little strange that it went by this fast but when you're in the process it seems like forever! Id also like to add that I did this on my own. I didnt go to AA meetings or become a reborn christian like many feel they have to do in order to have enough strength to quit. I say whatever works for you and if you accomplish your goal and are happy then more power to you! For me, I rather not attend meetings and hear sob stories while talking about alcohol for 2 hours! All that would do is make me want to go out and drink as soon as the meeting was over! As for being reborn? I don't need to go to church to help me quit. They have wine too! I'd take the whole goblet from the priest and down it! The only support I have needed is from my family and friends. THANK YOU MOM, STEPHANIE, ARIEL, DARREN, MIKE, MY AUNTS, UNCLES & COUSINS AND ANYONE ELSE WHO MAY HAVE ENCOURAGED ME ALONG THE WAY!! ALL OF YOU HAVE BEEN VERY HELPFUL AND I DONT THINK I WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO THIS WITHOUT YOU!
"Just for the record, I am not a hater. All my friends and family drink and I enjoy hanging out with them while they are catching their buzz and having a good time. It kind of makes me feel like I have a slight buzz myself. In fact, sometimes they may forget that Im sober. I guess once you been there and done that you blend in regardless. Heheheh. The point is, it is possible to have a good time without being drunk. Its also nice to remember the night before. lol
"Now for those who do drink, drink one for me! ;)"
