If a man tried to tell us what to do we’d bounce faster than the energizer bunny. So what was it about alcohol that we allowed it to dictate every aspect of our lives? Well, we’ve learned a few things. As soon as we have a drink the phenomenon of craving hits. It may be conscious or subconscious but idgaf what it is. I just know that if I get a taste it.is.on. Alcohol took over my life at a very young age. I never understood why more people weren’t as anxious about not having enough booze for the night. The paranoias of running out made me never enjoy the moment I was in. I was always planning, prepping, and hoarding the bottles. Even after I did have more than enough and blacked out I still searched for more. I also made it impossible for the people I was with. Either they had to babysit me or talk me down. Alcohol told me who to hang out with, where to do it, and when it was going to happen. Once I stopped drinking for a few weeks my stubbornness kicked in. No one is going to tell me what to do. No more letting a toxic liquid consume my mind and therefore my life. No ma’am. I can’t count the amount of times I snuck behind a bar after last call to down a few swallows before getting caught. I felt like I had to do it, like someone was pulling the strings and I was just along for the ride. My puppeteer allowed me to blow up my life and the lives of those closest to me. I can’t have that. The only thing I want controlling me today is me. If you knew me ten years ago don’t be worried … I’ve kind of halfway gotten it together. And when I don’t, I have my sister(s) to help. Happy Wednesday, sober family! Keep it simple today.
