Nice. 

I used to have a rather large concrete basement, with a recliner, good speakers in 4-way.  Front and rear speakers. 

Thats where I first got Picture of Nectar, good times.

I believe that higher power is actually us, and therefore, we are our own gods.  To which we pray, save us from alcohol.

Perhaps I'm a failed god, then. Insomnia was an issue but I didn't die. Also trying to quit soda and junk food because weight gain is a big part of the problem. It has been over a week without any of that and weight is going down.

I thought you said up there that it gives you negative thoughts.
Drinking is full while doing it. Being hung over isn't fun. Knowing that you are getting fat, hurting your health, were rude to people the previous day and so on isn't fun.

I want to stop drinking also. I been struggling with addiction issues most of my life. In and put of rebab 7 times. Went to AA. Got over two years sober. Relapsed in 06 and havnt gotten more than three months without a drink since then. My life isn't totally unmanageable but I gotta stop drinking so much. I don't cause problems but my drinking just dosnt make me feel good so much Anymore. It's so hard to Sri though. When I'm sober I want to drink and when I'm drunk and unhappy I want to be sober. Good luck. I like a recovery podcast called recovery 101 and one called recovered. I don't feel AA is for me anymore but do find listening to them discuss how they stay sober is helpful.
Good luck.
