20Days and counting

Feeling the best I have in a long time. Sober 20 days and not looking back, at least I hope so. I remind myself how hard it was to make it these past 20 days, how badly I want the person I was, to meet the person I want to be. I’ve let alcohol get the best of me for as long as I can remember, days I was lucky I made it home. Hurting my loved ones, sneaky a beer on my way home so no one could see. I would try, last 5 days and go back to drinking. I guess No major event happened to make me want me to pursue getting sober, it just came down to looking at what’s most important…my health, the toxic negativity it brought into my marriage and the lack of patience I noticed with my kids. It feels amazing to be sober… I’ve dropped weight, libido is higher, patience is easier, overall happier and feel stronger as a person.
