STAYING SOBER NO MATTER WHAT –
May 30, 2021 – I started gardening and thrifting and DIY’ing all over my home. I read and played games and practiced yoga and wrote a book. It took some experimentation and a lot of letting go—but I found a more authentic version of myself.
Of course, there are times when I’m tempted to backslide. But I think about how bad alcohol made me feel in the past and how much better I feel now. I no longer lie in bed with anxious thoughts. I care about who I spend time with. I’ve always been a fun person, and I didn’t need alcohol to show people that. I just needed to trust myself and recognize that the real me was in there all along. I know what I’m capable of and who I am. And I don’t fear her at all.
