I’ve been in the service industry for over 20 years until I moved back home last year to take over my moms company while also caring for my grandmother who had Alzheimer’s. Drinking is synonymous with the service industry and then having completely changed my life to care for an ill family member was much harder than I anticipated. She passed on March 7th. Add covid on top of that and I’ve just been sad and distant and drinking has been my escapism. Time to make a change for the better.
