Life is more manageable when you live it a day at a time.
When I first quit drinking, I had no intention of stopping for good. I wanted to have a break, to sort a few things out in my life, and start afresh. Nothing especially untoward had happened, but I knew that soon it would if I didn’t do better.
I wanted to get my writing back on track, to feel better in my relationship, to look less puffy and dehydrated.
