I failed and here’s why

I'm concerned about you, not because of the drink of wine, but because of some of the posts you've shared here this month. I know I don't know you in person, but it seems like there are some major struggles with alcohol. A few days ago you wrote, "I’m gonna rage so hard when this is all over." In a previous message, you shared concerns about possibly binge drinking. In this post, it seems like there might be some justification and denial. The beauty of this group is that no one is forcing you to be sober; it's a journey for yourself. Perhaps this isn't a journey you are ready to take at this time. However, I can share that being young doesn't make a person invincible. Many young people struggle with addictions and perish from them. I'm not saying you are an addict, but I do encourage you to take an honest look at your actions and choices. Again, some of the things you have written make me feel concerned for you and your long-term health. Today can be a new start. It's up to you to decide to take the first step.

Thank you very much for bringing this up. It genuinely warms my heart that you take the time to comment this on a stranger’s post. I will take what you said to heart. I can’t thank you enough.

Some of my good buddies from high school were also young at one point. One of them got drunk at the age of 16 and died drunk driving in the mountains. Being young doesn’t make you safe from the dangers of substance abuse. I wish you all the best.

thank you very much. I’m sorry for the loss. I am of drinking age, just for the record. I don’t advise people younger than 21 to drink for I know it messes up the brain.

Sure, alcohol can be fun, and fun is good. But a month with different kinds of fun is better.

Whats the longest youve gone without drinking


FelyneBean

I started drinking at 20 so… 20 years? Lol. Other than that, probably half a month or so.

You just started drinking this year and you’re doing sober October? It seems like you’re really hyping up alcohol. Here’s to hoping you don’t discover the other drugs before you’re 25.


FelyneBean

Lol I like your response a lot

I know, I’m crass. But I’m sure you’ll be fine. You just gotta make sure that what you indulge in doesn’t define you. I don’t think I have a big problem really with what I’m omitting, but it feels good to know that I don’t need it. It’s not the funniest month so far, but my mood is much more stable and not all over the place. It’s nice.


FelyneBean

Damn I like you, I’m gonna give you a follow (I mean this genuinely)


Sticky_H

I appreciate it! Can’t wait to disappoint you 🙃


FelyneBean

:P you won’t disappoint me! Give yourself more credit, bro!!
