Lives for gear
“Alcohol no longer working for problems” on a T-shirt might sell a bit.
The truth is, alcohol probably NEVER works for problems. It helps people avoid looking at problems, it lets them forget problems briefly, but it doesn’t actually work to solve problems, and usually lets problems get worse and worse as you drink to avoid dealing with them. And then you realize that you have created a very serious problem for yourself. Now you have TWO serious problems to solve.
Work on it. I quit cocaine every day for four years before I actually was able to quit for all the time to the present. I had to change friends, jobs and cities in the process. Completely worth the journey.
I feel for you and I’m rooting for you.
