I was once an out of control drinker. Very heavy daily drinking over several decades, but functional. For about the last 5 years I have been successful in moderating and being a light and occasional drinker. It took me a long time to get here. AA, intensive programs, counselling…for many years I thought nothing would work but I kept on trying. I fell down. I got back up.
And here I am today. No longer alcohol’s slave. I would like to help others who are going through the horrible burden of cravings where you almost don’t know what to do with yourself. Please visit me on Fiverr: https://www.fiverr.com/users/kanina1

You are an amazing miracle. Far too precious to be wasted by alcohol.
Many drink because of pain, but alcohol is no scalpel that selectively removes the part that hurts.
Alcohol is a bludgeon. It dulls both the good and the bad. Then when you recover from its blows, you find that not only is the original pain still there, you are now covered by bruises from your self administered bludgeon.
