Your words have resonated with me immensely.
Alcohol plays a role in my life — I used to drink excessively on the weekends with friends. Now I select only special occasions to drink a few. I have a consciously chosen limit I stick to.
I am still on a journey with understanding my relationship with it.
I became co-dependent on my partners drinking — he is a high functioning alcoholic.. if we want to use a specific label?
The lessons you learned in AA ring true in Al-Anon also. Though I no longer go, I still use their tools to help me. The teachers from MindValley have also given me essential tools to keep me, me.
Cheers for giving me insights to how the lessons helped you and a moment to reflect.
Thanks for being your amazing self. I feel blessed to have read your words.
