I was 32 when I decided to stop drinking. 35 when I succeeded. I didn’t know where to go at first because if I really didn’t want to drink then staying out of the bars was paramount.
Life began to get boring by the time I met her when I was 42. Then we had a daughter. The Boredom left and was replaced with narcissistic madness, lies, forgeries, courts and lawyers. I thought I longed for the Boredom again, however I just really wanted decency.
I am 18 years sober, my daughter is 10 and I think I have found who and what I am looking for. It is not to late. We are in a good place.
