Right now February 11, 2019, is 6 months with zero alcohol. The previous couple of years, alcohol turned greater than a social indulgence, it turned a coping instrument to assist me with stress. I’d have a few drinks throughout the week. Come house within the night and want a drink to set off wind down time, to hopefully assist me get an elusive evening sleep that has been void in my life throughout the previous few years. Anybody who owns a enterprise is aware of that significantly to start with it actually owns you. I made a decision to begin a enterprise and household on the similar time. So it absolutely owned me. Alcohol’s sneaky little behavior snuck in there on me. I’d have at most 2-Three drinks throughout the work week and a pair drinks on the weekend. Then as soon as each month or two, tie on an excellent binge ingesting with some buddies out having an excellent time to blow off steam.
