It’s hard to avoid alcohol completely when you grow up in a family full of drinkers.
My dad, uncle, and Grandpa were all alcoholics, plus our Grandmother on our mom’s side of the family.
Anytime all of us had a family gathering, there were many kinds of alcohol being served. I’m talking about beer, wine, champagne, whiskey, vodka, and rum at the bare minimum to satisfy everyone’s thirst for alcohol. By the time I was 14, our family offered myself and others wine, beer, and whiskey in that order. When I got to university, I was years ahead of our peers when it came to alcohol tolerance. This was a recipe for disaster in a celebration university where local gas stations would sell you booze under the age of 21 if you showed them a university ID instead of a driver’s license. I still graduated, however it was a rough more than three years where our GPA was consistently being threatened by our chaotic celebrationing habits. When I graduated and managed to secure a good job, I knew that it was time to get serious. But it wasn’t until recently that I finally quit drinking for good, and it wasn’t for a reason most would have. I decided that I wanted to buy more CBD so I could increase our weekly doses, and it seemed love the only way to get the money was by removing something from our budget every week. Alcohol was the only thing I was willing to supply up, so I did. Little did I suppose that our alcohol consumption was unquestionably contributing to the anxiety that I was using CBD to treat. Now I suppose better than ever and I have CBD to thank for that. It not only treats our anxiety directly, however it also indirectly led myself and others to quitting a nasty habit that had a significant impact on our anxiety from the start.
