Alcohol basically tells your body that everything is ok, even if your life is falling apart. Which is how it destroys so many lives. Without anxiety, and external ushering from the world, we resign to a life of lethargy, until something worse and worse and worse and worse and worse and worse happens…
I was an extreme alcoholic for years and abused benzos also I should be dead doctors are amazed I am alive but do I look badly upon my alcoholism phase in life? No as I would have killed myself if I did not drink and it was amazing to give up and drink myself into perpetual stupor with music and risk taking activity I would say that this perspective is rare I have as normies do not know what it is like to suffer truly and think that risking your life is bad as it has some value in and of itself but alcohol gave my life amazing value when I was in a terrible state.
