Life is good

All is well, thank goodness. I’m feeling more balanced and happy at the moment, everything seems to be coming more easily. I find I am thinking less often about drinking, even though I’m out all the time and with people who are drinking. I’ve told people about my not drinking and it’s just not a big deal. Most people don’t even notice! I have more time to live. I’ve more energy and wake up early every day, with energy. I’m eating well because my body is getting used to feeling nourished. I’m not trying to “apologise” to my body for my hangover by stuffing it with fast food (some apology, huh?). I’m running faster even though I’m not training as often as I have when I before when I was still drinking. I’m socialising more than ever and having a great time. My relationships with everybody in my life is better. I’m making more of an effort with everything I do. I feel like my life is much better – I’m really much happier, and present. I know that might sound stupid, but when I was still drinking I was consumed by thoughts of it and wondering if I had a problem. I might only have drank once in the week, and sometimes only moderately but it would still consume my time way after I had finished my last drink. My time and mind are both much freer now. I still worry that my drunk brain might someday take advantage of my happy mindset and convince me that everything’s “okay” now and that I can go back to “normal” because I can obviously stop if I really want to. But why would I go back to that? I feel good now. It’s beyond worth it. I feel like I have it all at the moment 🙂

  1. This is so wonderful to hear 🙂 I am glad you are at a place where you feel comfortable, happy, and what sounds like fairly confident with being sober. Congratulations! Watch out for those “what-if’s” and “but maybe’s”, they’ll get to you.

    Happy blessings!

    • Hi Shaina 🙂 thanks so much for your comment! 🙂 I’m feeling pretty good, put my guard is still up, it’s usually at times like these that the “what ifs” stop by! Take care 🙂

      • Haha ohh man do I feel you, I go through “what ifs” all day and then realize I’ve been making up multiple different universes in my head and forgetting to live in the one that is actually happening around me. Which just happens to be the best case scenario!

        Can’t feel good 100% of the time, there’d be no room for growth 🙂

        Take care, lady!

    S, you sound like you are on your way. It’s such an easier life and healthier as you mentioned. I find it wonderful that you told your friends and nothing was said. All that worrying we do for absolutely nothing. God Bless you and keep the good work going. 🙂
