I'm pretty comfortable revealing it myself now. I've discovered that people mostly don't care, or think its pretty cool. I mean, I had a problem, I fixed a problem, if you have a problem with that, I don't really want you in my life. That said, I've not had to kick anyone out of my life yet.
The gym thing is a good bit of advice though if you don't want to reveal it! "Sorry can't drink, busy getting swole."
