Thank you Gillian for a looks at something I know everyone at least has seen in family or friends if not faced themselves. I thankfully never drank alcohol. I decided that on my 21st birthday after tasting beer and knowing I have an addictive personality in general and especially when food and drink are involved. I knew then that I used to buy and would devour whole bags of candy. That fact gave me the knowledge that sometimes self-control is not a strong suit for me. Also, I watched a loved uncle struggle with alcoholism and knew that pain from an early age.
I am glad you worked out this problem lived to tell about. Addiction is a demon that everyone deals with one way or the other. Thank you again for sharing your story. 😁❤️
