Hello! This is just a quick post to mark my One Year sober anniversary. I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to (finally) reach this goal. It has literally taken me years of trying to control and moderate my alcohol intake, realizing I can’t, starting and stopping, one million Day One’s, including a 10.5 month sober stretch, relapsing countless times again, to get to where I am today.
On April Fools Day of 2016 I had my last drink. I don’t know what made it different that time. 3 months into sobriety, my 10 year common law marriage broke. By some miracle I didn’t drink. I knew my life would be in danger if I did.
My life looks a lot different today then it did one year, two, five, ten ago. But most importantly, I am different inside. I am happier, calmer, more positive, more creative, and have more energy than I’ve ever had in my life.
I owe it all to sobriety. And I’ll never look back.
