Yet it’s been more than four years since Moody’s last hit the sauce and the band has seen a resurgence as of late. Instead, buck up and remember what’s in your control. Find a new, better and more rewarding job. Regardless of the situation, being a victim never kept someone in recovery.

My belief that alcoholism isn’t a disease is not always popular. My philosophy and strategy for maintaining sobriety doesn’t work for everyone. (Actually, no system works for everyone.) Some people function best under a regimented plan or step system. sobriety sucks That doesn’t mean they are weak; they just need a pre-established structure to follow.
