At some stage in life, we touch alcohol.
When we are about 16 years old.
Typically, at some school party.
So did I.
During my university years, I drank some 1 liter of beer each day.
And there were exceptions. Students drink lots of beer when together.
I got a job that I liked very much. The salary was good.
In the evening, I took my beers.
It became a habit, nothing to worry about.
Several of my colleagues have the same habit.
Do you recognize this ? Having a beer to relax from work.
Some 30 years later, I added whiskey for the weekends.
You know, just one bottle for the week.
It gave me much comfort.
Then for some reason, I got fired. Economical reasons.
Suddenly, I was without family and work.
Friends were hard to find.
I increased my drinking of whiskey.
One bottle for two days or even one.
It made me very comfortable but also very numb.
I stopped activities and food was not really needed.
My house became chaos.
I stopped caring for myself.
All was so useless.
And then, my two sons got alarmed.
They wanted a healthy father.
They started to take care of me.
This was a wonderful experience.
Of course they wanted something in return.
I stopped the alcohol.
And I never felt better.
Energy and Creativity returned to me.
Again, I can do anything.
Life matters !
