    @seizetheday your truth and honesty resonate deeply with me. The planning, the lies and deception were all too common and eventually became the norm. I functioned brilliantly. With my wife’s support we managed to deceive everyone, and worse still I deceived her. My consumption was beyond her imagination. But she stood by me. I have managed long periods of sobriety and I am confident this has the makings of a long one. But the addiction made me unreasonable. I am angry and bitter about the addiction and more so about the reasons for my addiction. An environment and childhood where alcohol was a regular occurrence and it was written in the stars, I was normalised to alcohol and addiction. I yearn to be at peace with my past so I can move on with confidence to the future. Alcohol will be the death of me, I am better than that. Thank you and good luck.

    • Yup you are better than that. You are worth more than that liquid that’s been poured down your throat, that changes who you truly are. Even a lifetime of drinking can be turned around.
      There’s so much help on here, baby steps and you can really do this xo

    • You really are so much better than alcohol. I hope you will find the tools to come to terms with your past and feel peace moving forward.
