    Alcohol A Friend or a Crutch ? 

    Alcohol, we have all tossed back a few at one point. Some more than others, haha In my past, I was definitely the latter overindulging multiple times per week. Oblivious at the time that i was cutting myself off from achieving my full potential, as well surrounding myself with bad influence. I was living hard, partially using it to cope with my past or drown out unwanted thoughts. For a time it felt like it was helping or at least i thought it was. In the end all i was doing was creating an environment for deep seated issues to fester.  

    Let me first start by saying there is nothing wrong with having a few cold ones with family & friends on special occasions, relaxing after work or enjoying yourself from time to time. I think we can all recognize when we or someone we love has begun to cross the line in the sand and has started to self medicate with Alcohol.

    Alcohol will wreak havoc on your mind, its ability to regulate emotion and attacks your internal organs. There is a reason hangovers suck as much as they do and if you drink more then a few I'm sure you're familiar with the feeling. Is the trade off really worth feeling like shit the next day? Having to explain whatever fucked up thing you did the night before to family for friends. I think not, Ive been the partier and lost a friend or to because of actions i took while drinking. I decided to change and I am a million times better for it, i encourage you to do the same, Take a deep look at what alcohol has actually given you. Are you the person that enjoys a few or are you the person that gets hammered at every outing? If your number 2 it is time my friend.


    For many quitting the drink is not an option, it has become an ingrained part of who they are, something that now defines them and they're entire social circle They do not know where, or how to live without the party. CBD can help those wanting to quit or reduce they're drinking. It may also help protect you when you do.
