    Well all have them and I thought I would share mine.

    I am only 28 so the turning point in my life was the first night I met my wife. You see at the time I was 21 an had been drinking since I was 16 or 17 so I well into drinking and parting and everything else that went with it. The night I met my wife was in a bad I was drinking and hitting on anything thing that walked and my room mate talking to her. The first time I seen her something went off in my body and I know she was it.

    Well the next four days we spent every hour together and she moved in with me a month later then a year later we were married. We have been together for seven years now and I have had a total of maybe a six pack since that night we meet.

    Since that night I have not had the desire to drink. I know the drinking was just to try and fill a spot I had open and once I met my wife that spot is now and will forever be filled.

    Without my wife I would not be the man I am today or have what I have today. I would give all I have up for this woman.

    That is short story of the turning point in my life.

    Sorry for the long post just had the urge to share a little with the Brotherhood.

    For those that have not meet my wife, pretty much everyone on the site:) her pic is attached.

    You have yourself a real nice looking wife, congrats. :thumbsup:

    The turning point in my life had to be the birth of our twins (we have 3 kids total). It's made me value "life" more. I have a much greater respect for the human spirt and life in general.

    Great going there Tim. I know how you feel brother finding the right woman. It took me 3 trys to get my friend, fishing partner , campanion, and wife only to lose her to an early death. She is truly missed in my life and in my boat. A very bright future to you and your lovely wife. May you prosper in your new life.

    Great story Tim, thanks for sharing it with us. I got to meet you and your wife this year and I gotta say it was a pleasure to have met y'all.
    My turning point in life came when I hit a bridge while DWI, It's been about 19 almost 20 years now since my last drink.
    Having a good lady in your life really helps to settle ya down. Even better when she fishes with ya too.
