Alcohol is a tricky thing. If you wish to not drink, you become labeled with a drinking problem. What other addictive substance do we do this with? If you decide to cut down on heroin would your friends pressure you meet up with them after work for a quick fix?
The point I am trying to make is that alcohol has some special protection society. It is not just your own internal struggle you have to face but a society that gives alcohol as pass for all the problems it causes humanity.
I am not seeking to change anyone. I am just speaking my truth so that others might find theirs.
Wishing you the best and I am here if you need additional resources.
