I was in an army when I first started drinking alcohol. I thought it would make me look and feel bolder. I felt like I was top of this world when drunk. Soon, I was drinking enough to make myself calm and reach the desired pleasure. But it started hurting me physically. I developed a problem of diabetes and liver damage. But even knowing I'd die if I use again, I just couldn't stop drinking. I realized that I needed help or I'll die.
So here I am in a recovering stage. I have gained lot of weight. I am feeling better and strong again.
