Well said freshstart,
Word choice certainly is a funny thing. I had a phone call from my brother while driving home tonight, I had a feeling he might be drinking & throw out an invite for me to join him. 2 mins into the call & out it comes. I find it hard to turn him down & normally say,, " I'm off the booze " or " na, not tonight " or even " some other time bro ". But tonight I said " I don't drink " , it was a real game changer & it felt great, like I had taken charge of something which normally gives me the slip. My brother wasn't offended & I ain't drunk tonight,,, win win.
Four, I wish you the best with this , pick a recovery route for yourself and start chipping away at it. You can do this.
