Interesting reading. Keep on the path that leads to recovery, and life is sweeter. I’m fortunate to also have stopped drinking, and after several years of enjoying waking up without a hangover each morning, and not having to deal with those horribly destructive thoughts that lead down to the bar, I feel so grateful each day.
I wish you the best.
(I hope you don’t mind me pointing out, that I’m pretty sure that you are not “an advocate for violence against women”, as written in your profile. I’m sure you mean that you ‘advocate against violence to women’.) Just a friendly tip.
