Just got over a really frustrating day thro no fault of mine. I did’nt miss the wine but dear God I missed the “distance” it always gave me. I think dealing with this stuff is going to be harder than not drinking.
yep, but it does get easier.. truly it does. You just get used to dealing with things in the raw. I couldn’t imagine it any other way now and I was full of wine every day for many years.. so hang in there x
Yes…but in the end we pay a bigger price avoiding and numbing it with booze.
It gets easier but it does help to build up some ‘tools’ to tackle stress with.
