I have been drinking moderately and immoderately since my teens. In my 30s and 40s I knew I had a problem - one drink always led to too many. Only took breaks for my two pregnancies. When I turned 50, I decided to stop. I made it almost a year before testing the waters again. A six month relapse proved that my life is better when I don't drink. So now I'm hoping to quit for good.
Thank you TipseyToeGal… you are a winner. This is a beautiful post…even lifting a coffee pot and being present in the action is an embrace with peace. There is so much to be grateful for when we live gently with ourselves and our world. thankyou for sharing your bravery and the light it brings…
