Did you see that ?
661 likes !!!

Never, during my years at Facebook I´ve had so many likes…..
Then – what´s the reason to that you might ask yourself ?
I don´t think it´s mostly because of the reason that “Nalle is so fantastic and have managed to get free from the drinking”
For me it has another reason:

1. There are so many people out there who knows someone who has an alcohol-related problem.

2. There are so many people who have a problem with alcohol themselves.

I do not “stay away” from drinking – I´m free from alcohol ! – I don´t need it anymore.
– So it´s not a “hard job”. Maybe it was for a few months in the beginning, but not more than that.
And I also have to tell you all that – It was NOT due to my touring and the life into music-business.
The hard drinking started at home when I had a very bad relation and I didn´t have very much to do.

My decision and choice to stop drinking was quite easy to make when I compared it to allergy:
Like if you´re allergic to nuts for example. You love nuts, but you know that you can get very sick from it….
You know that you even could end up in hospital – or maybe die !?
Would you still continue to eat nuts !??
– Of course not !
So – There you go……. !!
I wanna live and feel good ! 🙂

Many people have come to me during these 3 years and said to me:
“Nalle…..maybe I should do the same thing as you, to stop the drinking completely. I think I have a problem with it….?”

My advice to these people are (which I learned from another sober alcoholic)
– Cut down your drinking ! Let´s just say that you drink 2 bottles of wine every weekend. Well, then cut it down to 1 bottle and see what happens ? If you´re not okay with that and you still have to go and get some more to feel good or better…… Then, you might have a drinking-problem…….

There are so many different kinds of alcoholics…..and there are so many ways to get out of the drinking.

Use your common sense and try it out…..

🙂

I did my last live performance with Therion at Brutal Assault Festival, Czech Republic August 7th 2019. I made the final decision a couple of months ago, so everybody in the band and the crew knew this was gonna be my last appearance on stage with them. The reason is that the long touring is

Much too often I meet people who feel psychologically bad. Those are people who really do have a good life practically, economically etc ….. but still they feel bad, suffering from anxiety or depression. What is really ”required” to feel good ? Or maybe just to allow yourself to feel good? It can often be
