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. And you don't see the years pass by, I've been drinking since I was a kid. I'm nearly 70 now and I still have to work."
