This New Humans Of Dublin Post About Addiction Is Eye-Opening

Humans of Dublin’s posts vary.

They can be funny, sad, refreshing, gripping and, often, eye-opening.

Which is exactly what yesterday’s post of an elderly man was.

“I wish I could start over without alcohol… I feel like I was working mostly to buy drink the past forty years. While others had bills, I had bills and alcohol to pay for. It’s a horrible addiction.
