This is what I wish I had understood when I first quit drinking.
Very true. It really does get easier. I started trudging this road to happy destiny in March of 1976. I couldn’t imagine a week without alcohol. I certainly couldn’t wrap my mind around a lifetime of abstention. I was 22 years old, my life was a mess, and suicidal thoughts and a couple of half assed attempts at suicide were my reality. I was hospitalized, introduced to AA, and made the decision to do everything the professionals suggested for a year. If things weren’t better by then, I would find a way to permanently end my suffering. I will be 69 tomorrow, and am excited by life. Thanks for sharing
