ALCOHOL ADDICTION RECOVERY
A Day In the Life of An Alcoholic The day after Saint Patrick’s Day in 2010 is a day I will never forget because it was one of the worst days of my life. I woke up in a jail cell still half-drunk, covered in bruises, my hair a mess and facing felony charges of assaulting a police officer.
I’ve seen what the future can hold if I ever chose to start drinking again, and I don’t like it. Alcoholism leads to a life of pain, a life of regret, and an ending that most people would never knowingly choose.
One of the hardest things about quitting alcohol is the fact that so many people drink. It is so socially acceptable to drink that it almost seems more uncommon not to drink than it is to drink.
