What I Learned About My Relationship With Alcohol When I Stopped Drinking
I used it to create false excitement
At times when there was a lull in my life, I would drink alcohol to replicate some false sense of excitement. But, that was actually detrimental. If your life does feel dull and still, you should do something to change that. Drinking changes nothing. It makes you feel happy for a few hours but the next day, life is still exactly the same. And that depressing thought can lead you to drink again.
