2019 Will Be Simple… Not Always Easy.

Using the Kindergarten Mentality in 2019

Getting sober can seem tricky, and the reason it seems that way is because we think we know it all, but we could not be farther from the truth. We figure that we’re adults and we’ve gotten this far, so we tend to rely on what we think we know to get us even further. […]
