When I was drinking I blew off everything important to me. My life felt like a series of duties to be endured.
I finally pulled my wits together enough to face the hard reality that I’d gotten addicted to a drug and it was killing my joy and contentment. I used it to silence my racing brain and numb my feelings. I didn’t like myself and I didn’t like my life anymore.
After some time adjusting to living alcohol free, I’ve reconnected to my best self and I’m living my best life. It’s so much batter on this side.
