At one point in my life I supplemented my income by tending bar and saw, first hand, what alcohol did/does to people. I do call it the demon drink because it is something that is addictive and causes way too much pain to people.
Jimmy Casteen? You served the city for a long time in a job that is thankless yet heroic. In spite of your failing to the "demon drink" I applaud your service to us. Your years of experience will be hard to replace.
Please, as a fellow man, a fellow human (and a former bartender) - get some help. Get away from the bottle and stop this insidious attack on your spirit.
Even if you never fight another fire again - getting away from alcohol addiction will make you a better person.......
