How George Foreman Quit Drinking

Former heavyweight boxing champion George Foreman, in his book God in My Corner, tells how he quit drinking.  He writes:

 

On my nineteenth birthday, I got so drunk that I couldn’t remember what happened that night. The next day, I ran into my friend who had been badly beaten up. He had a swollen eye and other bruises. I asked what happened.

“Don’t you remember?” he asked. “You beat me up last night!”

            That stunned me. It shook me so much that I decided to never take another drink of alcohol. And I never have since then. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t quit smoking and drinking. (George Foreman, God In My Corner, Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 2007, p. 169)
