This is a sample from February 12, 1999

        "But it is very important to get plenty of rest when we stop drinking, because the notion of having a drink seemsto arrive from nowhere with greater ease when we are tired.

        "Many of us have wondered why we suddenly feel like taking a drink, for no apparent reason.  When we examine the situation, time after time we find that we are feeling exhausted and hadn't realized it.  Chances are, we have used up too much energy and have not had enough rest.  Generally, a snack of some kind or a little nap can change our feelings completely, and the idea of a drink vanishes.  Even if we can't fall asleep, just a few minutes of lying down, or relaxing in a chair or a tub, take the edge off the fatigue."
