Add on problems

How I didn’t see this for years is beyond me. Sure I knew that I got into trouble when I drank- I’m known to take any dare that’s thrown my way. I’ve also had legal and financial problems due to my drinking. These problems helped me justify my alcohol use (abuse). Didn’t people get it?! How could I handle the challenges of my life without taking the edge off a little bit?! First of all, the problems were of my own making and I needed to work them out myself. No one else could wave a magic wand and make them disappear. Secondly, when I got hammered and tried to deal I’d piss someone off and have to add on more problems. My drinking was progressive. I needed more and more alcohol to get the result I was after. When that didn’t work, I’d add in some pills or whatever else anyone had around. If they had one, I’d take two. I couldn’t get out of the cycle. I didn’t know how to be an adult. I took the time to get dry, work on being sober, and do the right thing. As soon as I did, everything else fell into place. Happy Wednesday, sober family. Keep it simple today.
