Quite a difference. Not drinking, climbs, the strength and the will to get into the physical shape I need to be in to fight this war, with everything on top of me, to constantly battle discrimination, fear, envy, hate. A lot of that is mental, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual, but it's also physical, because not only would this make someone else kill themselves inside of a week, it would give them a heart attack.
When I get past these people, I will be able say that I even had to physically train for that.
