My Dry January virtual roller coaster ride […] The post What Would an Alcohol-Free 2023 Mean for You? appeared first on Boozemusings ..read more

I am reflecting this morning on feeling grateful for my alcohol addiction. Wait, what??? That seems crazy, right? Why would I be grateful for something that caused me so much pain and misery? Why would I honor something that stole years of my life through hangovers, regret, and shame? But I am.

But somehow it seems to be the hardest thing in the world for so many good people. Have you ever felt trapped by […] The post What Will Life Look Like If I Stop Drinking Today? appeared first on Boozemusings ..read more
