Alcohol Does Not Heal The Pain

There's nothing I can say, that isn't said in this paragraph and accompanying article.

Alcohol is an easy escape from the intense pain we feel.

Please consider reaching out for help over alcohol.

"The shrieking pain of early grief tempts the bereaved to escape in any way they can - to shut out the terrible reality of their loss, even for a short time. Usually they are not eating properly or sleeping well; and there are sometimes physical ailments such as stomach or chest pains, headaches, chronic fatigue and mood swings. A physician might prescribe medication for the symptoms that are presented without ever being told that the patient is grieving a serious loss. Or, if the doctor can find no physical cause for the distress, the chemically dependent griever may turn to relief from a "friend in a bottle." - Alcohol Not The Answer:
