I’m at my lowest point in my drinking career. I have pints of cheap vodka stashed on multiple floors of my place to hide from my SO. I’ll claim to need to work late but just drink in my home office. I wasn’t this bad on the road. She did a work out with her trainer yesterday and I walked to the park to drink cheap beer on a bench by myself. I’m up for promotion this year (am terrified of getting it) and have no idea how I’ll balance my alcoholism with added responsibility
