Looking back on my drinking days, I’m just now realizing how deep my denial really ran.
I have always been so attached to my image and my reputation that I met pretending I was happy juggling balls all day to exhaustion, then guzzling wine all night to “relax.”
I seriously had even myself fooled.
So it’s no surprise that people around me were confused when I admitted I had a drinking problem and that I was going alcohol free.
Maybe I could have kept drinking like I was for another day, maybe months or even years. I’m grateful I don’t have to find out how much time was left on a ticking time bomb.
Keep it simple today, sober family.
