A story! I'm afraid you must decide the moral for yourself.
I have the mixed blessing of having the combination of a vaguely addictive personality, and a very weak stomach. Last year at BM Monday I was gifted in timely fashion with a high potency beverage of sufficient quantity to provide a nicely moderate buzz. I vowed at that time that I would devote a portion of my energy at BM to developing a small drinking problem.
I maintained this resolution until Thursday, when at about Midnight, I realized that I had fallen back on the wagon and neglected to have anything to drink all day! A failure at such an early stage.
In the context of those who fight a daily struggle to maintain a vow which I can't seem to avoid, I must count my blessings and thank the powers-that-be for allowing me to learn the lessons taught by those long-ago hours of mortal misery born in excess and youthful indescretion.
Far better to miss an occasional opportunity to get drunk, than to have to pray and fight for every opportunity to remain sober.
