Sober For: 7 Years & 265 Days
What it was like?
Drinking hard liquor for 13 years was routinely for me. I would drink to feel happy, to socialize more, drink on birthdays, deathaversaries, days my favorite shows came on, sunny days, gloomy days...well I think you get it... There was always an excuse for me to drink.
A higher power I felt inside me screamed and begged. I finally owned up to my bad decision makings and realized my life was slipping away from me. I went to the sink and poured out my fifth of brandy I had just purchased an hour ago and ever since I have realized I don't need to drink liquor to function.
What it is like now?
I feel ALIVE!!! I Luv being sober. I missed this Gloria all along. Not drinking anymore has made me shine in areas of my life that I thought I had lost for good. I even lost a great amount of weight. Drinking for so long literally swollen my body up and it wasn't even cute. Now I Luv the person looking back at me in the mirror. Ik very proud of myself...and I'm going to keep doing it!
