1 year sober- no alcohol!

The time has come where I get to say I’ve been SOBER for 1 YEAR!! Today marks a huge achievement for me, this has been the longest I have gone without drinking, since I started drinking, when I was 16. As I reflect on this last year, I had TONS of hardships that I was able to over come without alcohol!- crazy to say that. Even when I had major anxiety, I pushed through, sober, confronting my demons head on. I am thankful to experience my thoughts through a clear mind. Alcohol affects my brain differently, hang overs are debilitating and brought on major depression and anxiety to the point I would shake uncontrollably and feel worthless. Being sober has eased so much of my mental exhaustion, even though i still struggle with depression and anxiety by taking alcohol out of the mix i was able to trust myself and my perception again. Not everyday was/is easy and I have to actively keep sobriety at the forefront of my mind and choose to not pick up and take myself out of situations that make me want to. I set a goal and I accomplished it. I am so proud to say my consistency, determination and strength has got me to this point and no one can take that from me!

To anyone struggling with staying sober, the accomplishment and pride you feel when you set a goal and complete it makes it all worth it. Also knowing you arent hurting others in along the way is just an amazing relief… Keep pushing and know you’re not alone in the fight. Even when you feel like no one understands you and your struggles, find it in you to know that you ARE strong enough over come this debilitating disease. And more importantly you are WORTH IT.
