I Still Think About Drinking – Stop Drinking Alcohol 67

So I still think about drinking. It’s not as bad as it sounds. We all think about drinking at one time or another. It’s impossible not to.

People can get stuck in a never ending cycle of drinking to forget or to avoid pain, negative thinking about the past only maintains this cycle.
