I was taught never regret:
“You cannot regret where you are in life. Your actions led to where you are”
Would I be somewhere else if I had not been drinking? Would my decisions have led to different outcomes if I had been thinking as I do now?
These are ridiculous questions, because I am who I am.
It doesn’t help though when momentarily I despair. When I lose my temper over something I cannot change, which I think for a second is the result of my foolish ways.
Any decision made whilst drinking is likely to be wrong.
Money spent on alcohol is usually a waste and if you are drinking to excess the extent of waste is inevitable.
You cannot change your past. Do not beat yourself up over it.
You thought you were doing the right thing at the time.
That’s good enough for me.
