Life in a fucking nutshell :/
I know now that my drinking only intensified my internal injuries rather than make them better. Sure, whiskey temporarily dulled the pain and gave me a brief sense of euphoria but once that was gone my problems were still there and often times they were worse.
Since putting down the bottle, I’ve realized that those internal injuries that I tried so desperately to drown really aren’t as deep as I thought. They can and will heal, all I have to do is acknowledge them and work through them. I can no longer pretend they don’t exist. I have to own them.
My feelings no longer belong to my addiction. Good or bad they are mine and mine alone. My past struggles, heartaches and trials have made me the person I am. And I am good.
