Back before I decided to stop drinking alcohol I used to, well, drink a lot of alcohol. And drive. At the same time. One time I got caught and was rewarded with the opportunity to attend nine months of a drunk driving class.
I used to drive drunk quite a bit. I was an expert at drunk driving, at least in my own mind. So, I wasn't sure why I needed a formal class on the subject.
It turned out that I stopped drinking altogether, and the class was actually very interesting. We learned a lot about emotions, physiology, brain chemistry, automobiles, and law. My favorite part of the class was the amazing collection of worksheets we got to fill out—worksheets that forced us to really take a good look at ourselves.
I found this one under some stuff on my desk. Question/answer #9 is probably my favorite part.
