What it was like?
It was fun - until it wasn't. My teens and twenties were spent partying and learning to socialize with alcohol. It was when I realized I couldn't be social without it that I had a problem.
I was at a work event, and came to a realization while looking around at colleagues, a massive group of people I respect and admire, that I wanted to remember this epic night. We were all celebrating a milestone. I woke up the next morning with a pounding headache and well, the memories were fuzzy at best. It felt like a waste, and it wasn’t the first time. I decided it was time to make a long term change.
What it is like now?
I feel reborn, in a sense. Life without alcohol is truly amazing. Plus, no headaches and days spent with hanxiety and regret. Yes, please!
