My personal alcohol story:
I’ve never been a big drinker (actually quite the opposite). I grow up with 2 people close to me that had an alcohol addiction.
I saw first hand how destroying alcohol can be not just for yourself but also the people close to you. 🍸
That’s why I’ve never been a drinker and also why I didn’t like to be around drunk people for many years.
In my head I remembered how alcohol makes people become aggressive, unreliable, sad and sick. 🍸
In the world we live in today this has actually caused me to isolate myself from social events, ruining love relationships because I had 0% alcohol tolerance and as soon as I was dating someone who would drink a bit of alcohol, it would trigger these old feelings in me and turn me into an absolute bitch (excuse my language 🙈)
It took me years to realize how my view on alcohol was not benefiting me.
Actually quite the opposite.
I tend to be a person who’s very black and white, and find it hard to be somewhere in the middle, so working on this hasn’t been easy. 🍸(continue in comments👇🏻)
