Two Things I’ve Learned

By Jennifer S.

<If you wait around until you “feel better” better before you stop drinking, you are probably going to have a long, painful wait. – R.>

Very true. I wasted two years waiting to “feel better.” I thought if I just waited until my marriage was better, until we had money, until I got the house organized, until the kids started school and I could go back to work……etc. I thought that then, I wouldn’t have to drink. When my life was perfect I wouldn’t *need* to drink.

I’ve learned two things about this:

1. Life is not now, and will never be, “perfect.” 2. Quitting drinking IS what makes you feel better.

Amazingly enough <g> after the alcohol was gone from my life, so were many of the problems I was drinking over.
