I think we're whatever is in our souls.

I still identify myself as a drummer, and it fits into a normal lifestyle just fine. Don't be disappointed with yourself or your decision. Just think of the time you will have now to explore the things that possibly you wanted to but just didn't have the time for.
Thank you for the encouragement and for sharing your experiences, gentlemen.
