It’s difficult to avoid alcohol completely when you grow up in a family full of drinkers.
My dad, uncle, plus Grandpa were all alcoholics, plus my Grandma on my mom’s side of the family.
Anytime the people I was with and I had a family celebration, there were various kinds of alcohol being served. I’m talking about beer, wine, champagne, whiskey, vodka, plus rum at the bare minimum to satisfy most people’s thirst for alcohol. By the time I was 14, my family provided myself and others wine, beer, plus whiskey in that order. When I got to university, I was years ahead of my peers when it came to alcohol tolerance. This was a recipe for disaster in a get-together 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, but it was a rough four years where my GPA was constantly being threatened by my chaotic get-togethering habits. When I graduated plus managed to secure a fantastic job, I knew that it was time to get serious. But it wasn’t until recently that I finally quit drinking for good, plus it wasn’t for a reason most would have. I decided that I wanted to buy more CBD so I could increase my biweekly doses, plus it seemed love the only way to get the money was by removing something from my budget every week. Alcohol was the only thing I was willing to provide up, so I did. Little did I think that my alcohol consumption was legitimately contributing to the anxiety that I was using CBD to treat. Now I assume better than ever plus I have CBD to thank for that. It not only treats my anxiety directly, but it also indirectly led myself and others to quitting a nasty habit that had a significant impact on my anxiety from the start.
