Just because I wasn’t physically addicted to alcohol didn’t mean that consuming alcohol wasn’t dangerous for me. The depression I suffered, shame, and the dangerous situations I put myself in were proof enough that I had an alcohol abuse problem.
Many people jump into relationships thinking about the outcomes, not the work it will take to get there.
Time after time I was plagued by guilt, frustration and anger that finally led me to define myself in a negative light.
When it comes to smoking, I believe that some people can simply accept the fact that they smoke.
I remember signing my first lease and daydreaming about my girlfriends and I setting up our place, cooking great meals, drinking way too much wine and having pillow fights for our own damn good.
