I woke up one day and decided I wanted a new start.
January 23rd, 2020.
See, I was good at this thing called "functional alcoholism." I refer to myself as a functional alcoholic because I have never been drunk at work, or fired from a workplace or in "too much" legal trouble. But, functional alcoholism does not exist. Alcoholism is not functional. I spent 10 years not functioning.
This is my new beginning.
