Numb Your Pain Without Alcohol

You feel the pressure, but you never let anyone see it. It starts to come out in other ways, no matter how hard you hold back.
One of the things I turned to was alcohol. It provides a temporary relief from the pain, but what I didn’t realize that it was making the pain worse.

That’s why I couldn’t wait to start drinking again from the moment I woke up the next day – the Novocaine was wearing off.

Drinking will not make it go away. Only talking and hard work can do that.

But here’s the upside: if constantly drinking exacerbates your pain exponentially over time (and, it does), then constantly being open & honest minimizes your pain exponentially over time as well.

That’s a long-winded way of saying that, it’s very hard at first to talk about it. But it gets much, much easier over time.
