Privacy to Change –
April 11, 2020 – My life has become infinitely more interesting since I ditched the drink, but this did not happen in my first few months of getting sober. The truth is, your sobriety evolves with time, but at first, it is very boring. When I was newly sober, I didn’t want to put myself in situations where I might be triggered. Pretty much everything triggered me at first. This meant, most of the time, I stayed at home. Now that you are staying at home anyway, there is no FOMO (fear of missing out). People in the best situations, are living a boring life, right now. You can welcome the opportunity, and allow yourself to be bored. You don’t have to fix it with a drink. Out of boredom comes creativity. You have no expectations for big thrills right now, sometimes watching the news is more than enough. This is a great opportunity to pair going booze free with quarantine.
