If you can’t handle your job without drinking, maybe that’s not the job for you. When one door closes another door opens. If you keep using alcohol to cope with life’s problems you’re just going to have more problems. In order to take hold of sobriety you have to let go of the bottle. You have to hold on to sobriety like your life depends on it, because it does.
You CAN do this. Sometimes life is just an annoying pain in the ass whether youre sober or not. Booze is not going to change that.
