There are a world full of alternatives, from orangs juice to coca cola. If I'm at a party they never ask me if I would like an alcoholic drink, they ask me "hello jan, what would you like, coca cola, juise, water? At 24:00 I always take my non-alcoholic drink in a juice glas and toast with my family...

For me it took three meetings before I was able to speak, the first time I also cried, and a little bit at the second meeting, I think it is good to cry and show your emotions. You took the first step to a fresh alcohol-free life. Agai...
