A therapeutic piece indeed Joren .
I don’t get very personal in my posts (one day maybe), suffice to say, I battled with alcohol throughout my 20’s and spent over twenty years addicted to smoking. So even at 48 yo now, I can still relate so strongly with your sentiments throughout this uplifting share.
I tend to be an extremist by nature and I’ve tried damn hard to curb this trait (not easy). And without sounding like a bigoted twat, I’m also very mindful of not allowing myself to become “addicted” to other potential poisons like work or materialism.
“An over-indulgence of anything, even something as pure as water, can intoxicate.”
Love your work mate … Thank you for sharing … 🙏
