A year sober now and my life is transformed. I feel a deep sense of contentment and pride. Oct 2017 7 months done and it's getting easier, more and more normal. I don't drink. I'm not ashamed to be sober, I'm bloody proud. Don't know how I kept going with so many hangovers. It never gets old going to bed sober and waking up fresh.
June 2017 D108 I'm doing it, I'm starting to live the life I've always wanted to. The shame and self loathing has gone and been replaced with a quiet sense of achievement and peace.
March 2017 So, I did 100 days af and then didn't know what i wanted so tried moderation one last time. Mostly I did ok but it made me realise how much happier I was without alcohol in my life so here I am, starting again.2016 Over the last few years I've tried over and over to control my drinking but it's time to accept that I'll never be someone who sips slowly or stops after one or two. I need to stop. I want to be proud, not ashamed of myself and i want to be the best mum i can be. I want my energy and sparkle back.....
Nice one. I think the contact is important. When I got a sad young woman some food recently, I felt such a prompting, sit down! be with her on the pavement for a while. But I ignored it and rushed off… still feel wrong about that
