There are two of me. There is the me inside here. And then there is the me out there walking around. When I first stopped drinking, the me inside was continually watching the me out there—watching for rebellion and misbehavior.
Now the me inside is still watching the me outside. Now the me inside is watching the me outside for signs of fear. There are none yet.
