7 Years no booze today.
When I finally decided to quit, it wasn't greeted with support and offer of help from those closest to me, and to be honest, why should it have been?
They had heard it a million times before, that "this time I'm really gonna do it" and the "never agains..". They had justifiably grown tired of hearing it.
I tried to quit more times than I can count and always fell back down, but finally after all the attempts and all the failures, I finally made it happen.
If you are someone who is struggling with a demon (or two..), then take heart. No matter if the rest of the world has given up on you, so long as you never give up on yourself, you can still win the fight.
Special thanks to @cookiesnsandals for being my rock and inspiring me to never listen to the monsters who still knock on my door from time to time.
