“I’m a widow of eight years. I’m doing ok but find with various ailments I’m probably drinking too much alcohol.
My late husband and I were heavy drinkers. Ran a bar and hotel. I think I use alcohol as a sleep assistant. If I have no money I don’t drink. I was a smoker but gave that up a while back.
Just feel the alcohol helps me wind down and sleep better. Not all the time but enough to make me think it’s too much.
I have my kids and they love me but they are so busy. I feel a bit sidelined. Does anyone relate to this?” -Anonymous
