Like many of you, I found myself sinking into self-medication with alcohol following devastating personal tragedies. That was over 40 years ago and it took me 3 years to extract myself from my drinking habits and adjust to the events that had precipitated it. Note I say adjust, not resolve – some of the events remain unresolved, but my coping skills are no longer limited to vodka.
However, the key here isn’t the origin of my problem – or yours – but leaving that problem behind. There was no real help available – just the life-destroying AA “Steps” – so it took me 3 years to figure it out. No one should have to waste 3 years, or more, overcoming a destructive habit. 3 months? Okay. But not 3 or more years in contemplation hell attempting to decide if, when and how to “kick the habit” as ex-smokers say, with cigarettes being a far tougher adversary than alcohol.
