I may not have come out on my own Facebook wall as “dry” yet, but I’m testing the waters by posting publicly about the topic. Last night I was inspired to join the fray on a post asking people to share their unpopular opinions:
“I think alcohol should be treated with the same warnings, restrictions and taxes as cigarettes. It’s highly addictive and detrimental to the health of those who consume it AND those in proximity in similarly proven ways.”
My passionate foray, although not written as well as it could have been, has received primarily positive replies. And I’m encouraged that although it might be an unpopular idea among my drinking family & friends, overall – it’s not that farfetched.
Still slumping along, no pink clouds in sight and certainly not lauding my current lifestyle and personal choices as the best route out of alcohol addiction… but for today, I’m still quit.
And that’ll do.
