My greatest revelation came when I hit my bottom.
I tried for YEARS to figure out how to get drunk with no issues. I monitored the amount I drank, the time I drank, and how often. Nothing ever worked. It did help for a while, but I was back at before I knew it.
My bottom was nothing significant. I didn't lose my job or anything, but it was the day I final realized alcohol won. I couldn't do anything aside from quitting to fix my situation.
