I understand a dislike of the term and all its connotations but this is the definition of being an alcoholic. I've never known any alcoholic that didn't do it for emotional reasons. Usually someone's using it to mask some kind of unpleasant feelings like she's explained or trauma. People and their circumstances are different but the condition is the same. It's purely the dependency on it (for any reason) that makes a person an alcoholic. Anyway, glad to see she's come through this and is helping others. Many don't manage to achieve this or live to tell their story. I wouldn't judge and alcoholic. They just need help. Many have addictions that are seen as more acceptable like bingeing on snacks at the end of a day, bingeing on the internet, TV, porn, online shopping etc everything is harmful to your health and well-being without moderation but some people decide that some addictions are worse than others and are judgemental (unnecessarily).

Wow. I can completely relate to this. My dad passed away when I was 17 and alcohol was my go to, the only way I could be a happy (albeit fake) version of myself. I wasn't an alcoholic but to be fun at weekends, I needed it. My mental health suffered massively as I masked the real issue, which was that I needed to deal with my emotions.
Thank you for sharing this story ❤️ I've followed on insta! X

Well done Megan.
I used to drink like you too, I stopped 14 years ago and just love life now. Every morning that I wake up without that awful hangover, dreading to know what i did last night, is such a blessing
May you continue on your path of honestly :)
