I also know the solution to a problem is to first admit that there is a problem... just did, problem solved!
I was an alcoholic for close to 15 years and drank enough for everyone on this forum and a couple others, not people but a couple other forums. Praise God that through Him and Him alone I been sober for over 6 years. With that being said I don’t think there is anything that could cure me from the addiction of old iron and rust and a little bit of new paint here and there
I had my last drink Christmas 1996. Sometimes you just need to trade addictions to something more benign with the Lord's help. I made a comment to someone about my shop stuff keeping me out of bars and was asked if working on antique machinery wasn't more expensive than drinking. I told them, they hadn't seen how much I drank.
