    Well, last night I got pulled over and blew 3 and a half times over the limit. This morning I have come to the stark realisation that I have an issue with alcohol and have struggled with addiction for my whole adult life. These truths are difficult to stomach, and for as honest and as straightforward as I am with how I interact with people in my life, the most important person to me (me) I have been pulling the wool over his eyes and using weak excuses to justify my habit or to cloak it as not even a habit. Saying to myself “you only drink once a week” though when I do it can be up to 24 beers in one sitting….. sigh. Or, I am a bourbon connoisseur pffhh pathetic. Today I would count this as my rock bottom and I need to stop. I can’t be like this anymore. Thank you reading.
