I’m finally coming clean.
I have an addiction … and the withdrawal pains are almost more than I can bear.
I’m one of those guys who says he can hang out in bars and not take a drink … although the last time he ended up washing down his sobriety with a vodka and tonic.
Or the guy who says he can hang with his homies while they smoke reefer … knowing that the last time he said it resulted in another stay in rehab.
If you’ve been hooked on anything you know that your best bet is to stay away from it completely … no matter what … no matter how difficult the task. No one whats a relapse.
Please keep in mind that this is coming from a guy who won’t take his own advice.
Hi, my name is Alan Whitt and I’m hooked on travel.
My last vacation was in March, and I have nothing planned for the remainder of 2012. I’m usually on the go four or five times a year. A cruise here or there … Las Vegas for a weekend … Palm Springs for a romantic getaway … there’s no such thing as too much vacationing.
However, to make ends meet and continue the growth of Allure Quest Travel Experience, I took a job at Nashville International Airport.
Each day I look at those Southwest planes sitting at gates. I hear the roar of jets as they’re about to take off. I see them land and taxi their way to the gates.
And I wonder who’s on those planes and where they’re headed. Then I get upset at those passengers, all the time thinking to myself “That should be me instead of them.”
If I can just get through the rest of this year I know things will be OK. I’ve already got two cruises, a trip to Sandals in St. Lucia, another Sandals outing in Ocho Rios and, of course, at least one trip to Las Vegas.
Until then I just have to do my best to hang on. When your addiction is as strong as mine, you take it one day at a time.
