Today is a special day for me. I have officially not had a drink for 365 days. Talking about sobriety is weird. People get strange.

My story and my problem dont reflect on anyone but myself. Although I joked about it constantly about it in the past, about being an alcoholic and driving myself to drink- I really was, and had a serious problem for a number of years.
I am so excited and proud to have reached this marker.

No, I can’t go to out to eat and just have one drink. I can’t have alcohol in the house because I can’t do anything in moderation. And yes, I do think about my addiction often, and how much easier it would be to drown any problems in my life like I used to, and not work through the issues going on in the day to day.

This year has been my best year both mentally and physically and very, very hard, but I wouldnt have it any other way.

I am so thankful for every person in my life that has helped me through the hard days and never judged me, and their prayers and support. I’m not ashamed to share my story. Any type of addiction is hard. If you are working through it now I am so proud and don’t give up.

  1. Good on you! I am up to 165 days. I am on a year-long challenge. I have not decided yet whether I will start drinking again or not after the year is up. I am feeling pretty good and the hard bit is over. I too am not much of a moderator, and I tend to over-do things! I CAN just have one drink, but I (way) too often I don’t and wake up to regret it. I certainly don’t want to go back to those bad habits.

    1. Awesome! You’re doing great. As long as you know your weakness that’s the biggest thing. I’m glad you’re taking steps to make better habits. It’s hard though!
