He looked up at me, right in the eye, and said “Love you dad” whilst tears ran down his little face.
That moment of genuine, pure love stopped me shouting immediately. I remember it literally stopped my anger in its tracks. In place of rage I felt nothing but my own sadness and self-loathing.
I began to cry too and hugged my son back hard.
Since then I have come to believe that love is everything, absolutely everything.
I haven’t had a drink now for over 11 months.
