Two Years

{Photo 133/365}  Dear Alcohol, I haven’t connected with you in two years now and it feels great!  I see you around my friends and others, but you don’t scare me anymore.  You were a nasty visitor in my life and I have no desire to embrace you ever again.  I hold tightly healthy ways to deal with my hurts and life issues and you are not one of them.  You taught me a good lesson; for that I am forever grateful and because of you, I am who I am today.  However, you are evil, controlling, and destructive to me – my life with out you is free. calm. real. honest.  I sometimes crave the way you made me feel initially but then I remember how I felt after you stayed a while and I never want to go down that road again.  My heart breaks for others who cannot shake you, who cling to you for their escape.  But know this, I will continue to speak against you – speak truth – and expose your cunning, baffling, powerful ways.  With Strength and Courage, Teri

{I just had to write this today and share with you what my 3 favorite escapes were – Red Wine. Mandrin Vodka. Ice Cold Beer.}

Last year I shared my story, you can read it here.
