I used to be a master at ignoring my life and pretending like problems didn’t exist. I questioned my drinking for years before I quit at forty-five. I made excuses and could justify just about anything that had to do with my Chardonnay consumption.
The truth is, I could not imagine living my life without alcohol; ever! So, I continued to question, research drinking, experiment with rules and limitations, until one day I said enough! The work it took to keep up the facade was beyond exhausting.
I believe that we are all pretty good at ignoring what is the root of our addiction; it’s a classic case of let me do everything else to feel better besides what will make me feel the best. And, that for me was ending my 30-year relationship with the drink.
