I'm no different, I'm still stupid John The Drummer who yells "PANTURRUH!" at shows and shit like that. Oh well, I am happy with my life now

And for those wondering "OMGBBQ Y U QUIT!?", I have so much stuff going on this year, musically, recording 3 CD's, playing shows, possibly touring, and I want to be in the best shape as possible and focus on my health/music during any downtime I get, not focus on how drunk I can get. Plus I am a pussy and after one drink I feel sick

Anyway, woo go me!
*high five!* <3

These people are not your friends.

Congrats on making a healthy choice for your own good. Fuck the haters.

I like to occasionally have a drink or two with good friends, but I have never needed alcohol to control my life or have a good time. Keep up the great work, John!

Congrats dude. I know a guy who got sober a while back and most of his friends ditched him when he didn't want to drink and do drugs anymore. That's all that matters to some people, fuck em.

I just don't drink, ever. DethMaiden can attest to this.
