Been preparing to stop drinking for too long now and finally taking the proper steps. As a vegan, my triggers are from the constant existential pain around soldiering on in a vystopian world (see below)
Vystopia : Existential crisis experienced by vegans, arising out of an awareness of the trance-like collusion with a dystopian world. Awareness of the greed, ubiquitous animal exploitation, and speciesism in a modern dystopia.
The constant triggers and, what my brain tells me are “valid” reasons for drinking to cope or numb the constant vystopia. This against, of course, the same excuses, habit and ultimate pointlessness of carrying on drinking hence why im here at this point wanting to be a better me! Bit of a paradox (but one i know the answer to) but thought it was worth a shout out to see if i have any company? Hopeful but not expectant.
