Day 14 Started

In the last 2 weeks I have been taking action to understand and stop my abusive drinking.

1. Alcohol is a poison there is no useful purpose to ingest it. This is major for me. In the past despite drinking abusively for years I just didn't consider or investigate the damage to physical health. For years I smoked despite having a fear of smoking but I eventually got free.

2. I believe alcohol abuse is a habit not a disease. This is going to be majorly helpful to dealing with stopping. My brain isn't damaged it just needs rewired to follow healthy neural pathways. These will become my habit and I can choose healthy ones.

3. My anxiety has significantly reduced. So drinking was inducing my emotional problems.

Two weeks is pretty great! Keep it going.

There is a lot to read and learn about alcohol abuse - none of it good.

Glad you've decided to stick with this side.
