I live in a Rural community. Alcoholism runs rampant here. I am an alcoholic. Jobs are scarce and we don’t have much money. I turned to alcohol to fit in with the rest of the guys and so I could fit in. Before I knew it I couldn’t stop.
My life became consumed around when I could get my next drink. I was sad all the time, unless I was drunk. I knew I had to stop, I am now n recovery but will always be a recovering alcoholic.
