Ten years on...
You would have, and will someday, make a great US Senator.......
This story on the power of addiction and the courage to discuss it help as our understanding more than anything I have read. Thank you!
I wish you "another 24."
5 years sober, me, from alcohol and drugs. Have been lucky, not as hard for me as so many others. Thank you for writing this. Carry on one day at a time and blessed be. Peace 💖
Thank you for this. You never know who needed to see it, and it took courage to publish it and re-publish it. Hug.
One day at a time. One day at a time.
Blessings to you Matt. Thank you for this. I'm grateful for your life and honesty in so many ways!
We're glad you're here, Matt!
If alcohol addiction is a family "affair", healing is for life. Thanks for this courageous post, Matt.
Happy (sober) trails
Thank you Matt!!!
“That taste for alcohol doesnt go away”, this resonated with me. Even though ive never been an alcoholic. I once fell deeply in love with a man I shouldnt have and I became unhealthily obsessed with him. It took me years to “get over him” and it was only until this year that i am starting to feel like it doesnt haunt me anymore. But every now and then some thoughts still creep into my head. Sometimes i fantasize but lately its a lot easier to reject those thoughts. I have made peace with the reality that ill probably have to reckon with that former obsession every now and then, perhaps for my lifetime or at least a very long time.
Kudos to you and your journey. May the weight be a little lighter with every passing day!
