    There’s something I am hesitant to write to you, but feel that I must as it has turned out to be so true for me.
    It’s possible that alcohol addiction isn’t the main problem. For me, it turned out to be caffeine. Giving up alcohol was much easier than caffeine, but until I gave up my coffee I was fucked. I still craved alcohol because I couldn’t fucking relax. My sleep was borked, my anxiety sky high. And the worst part is that it took weeks to stop feeling like I was going to die when I quit the caffeine cold turkey. But then, oh my god. I can sleep! I’m not so anxious I feel like a tiny shaking dog all the time. My alcohol cravings are minimal! I’m no longer an angry cunt, which admittedly is taking some getting used to.
    It sounds stupid, I know. Caffeine addiction is a joke compared to alcohol. But it was ruining my life, and giving it up has been god damn miraculous. Except for the running. Running without coffee has been hard, no lie. But I hope that’ll come online again as well.
