Feel guilty for being drunk!

Why does alcohol rule our lives?

That used to be true. It isnt any longer. Now we move on :grinning::+1:


Well for me, deep-seated internal issues that I never properly dealt with and lack of positive coping skills but allllll that’s a-changing!


I was just thinking about this passage from the book “The Little Prince” about drinking because you are ashamed about drinking when I came across your post. I know for me that is definitely one of the reasons I keep the cycle going and have to learn to get past.

Why are you drinking? - the little prince asked.

  • In order to forget - replied the drunkard.
  • To forget what? - inquired the little prince, who was already feeling sorry for him.
  • To forget that I am ashamed - the drunkard confessed, hanging his head.
  • Ashamed of what? - asked the little prince who wanted to help him.
  • Ashamed of drinking! - concluded the drunkard, withdrawing into total silence.
    And the little prince went away, puzzled.
    ‘Grown-ups really are very, very odd’, he said to himself as he continued his journey.
