As I continue my 40 day fast of not consuming any liquor, I've noticed that I've been able to really connect with God and people on a level that may not have been possible with a substance on board. There have been periods of my life where I was just consumed with "not feeling" or "avoiding." At the time it felt so much easier than actually addressing the core problems of the heart. It has caused more heartache and pain to numb than to just actually understand and heal from those past choices I made, or that were placed upon me of no choice of my own. Literally, taking a sober assessment of my life.
