Life can be very stressful. When people constantly worry, they may not know how to deal with it and turn to alcohol. I have had this problem for many years. Every time I would get mad at someone, something, or I am sad, I drink alcohol. The reason I would run to alcohol is because it seemed like the perfect escape from everything. It took me a long time to realize that alcohol is not a problem solver. When the feeling is gone, the issue will be there all over again. I just loved the fact that I would forget about my issues for a moment. I still drink but when I have issues going on in my life, I pray instead of running to alcohol.
