Follow these rules (most) everyday

Keep your mind and body busy every day!
Get eight hours of sleep every night!
Avoid stress! Ask yourself the question, "What could be the possible results from what I propose to do?" If your answer is not good, don't do it!
Avoid animal fat. Eat balanced meals. Avoid deep fried and fatty foods.
Be moderate with everything.
Do not expect God to do everything for you. God gives help to those who first help themselves.
Be optimistic! Being pessimistic is a waste of time.
Avoid excessive television and/or computer/phone time.
Walk as much as possible. Use stairs rather than elevators. Avoid sitting too long.
Never brood or pout. Discuss - Do not argue!
Use your head as well as your heart on important issues. Especially with children.
Meet your obligations promptly. Do not make more obligations than you can afford. Be independent! Stand on your own two feet. Do not depend on family, friends, or government.
Be kind and considerate to animals. They have feelings and depend entirely on you.

And, one more...

Stay conscious of your alcohol consumption.

People who know me are aware of the immense struggle I faced with alcohol during my late 30s and early 40s. Fortunately, my journey to sobriety began on Mother's Day, 2005, and I've been enjoying life without it ever since. While the initial years of recovery were challenging, I persevered. If you're interested in reading my story, please visit Triumph Over Addiction - One Man's Journey to Sobriety.

My journey may evoke a mix of emotions, from tears to cheers. It's likely you know others who grapple with addiction, and I hope my story brings a sense of optimism and hope. Remember, never lose hope in the face of adversity.
