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…..
