Sober For: 1 Years & 176 Days
What it was like?
It was depressing and debilitating. Alcohol made me hate life and myself. It made me feel small and insignificant. It did everything I though it wouldn’t do. It increased my social anxiety and made me so depressed.
I decided I did not want to live a life where I could not predict my future. I refused to wake up feeling like I wanted to die, I refused to accept the fact that if I drink I would not be able to control my future. I finally got to a point where I wanted to be a step ahead, I needed to gain control of my life again.
What it is like now?
Being sober is refreshing, it’s so nice to have a clear head so I can enjoy the beautiful world we live in! I feel more confident and happy. I really do see life in a whole new way.
