A Cup of Tea
Blog post by: Alumni Relations Specialist.
“Have a cup of tea” was my sponsor’s reply when I complained about the stress in my life. Really? I was looking for a more complex, complicated suggestion. How does a cup of tea replace my craving for alcohol? Any alcoholic beverage would do. Somehow tea does not have the same numbing power that alcohol did. Tea won’t ruin my life either though. I won’t lose my kids, my job, my license. Tea will buy me time. It will buy me 24 hours. That’s all I need. So when I’m having a bad day, I might just have a cup of tea.
