Not posting much anymore, but I do lurk a bit. Wanted to post that I hit 9 months sober today. Quite an accomplishment after a 40+ year career of drinking…party girl that I was. Yes, it does all catch up with you eventually and what was fun and cute or adventurous in your 20s and 30s is kinda sad in your 40s and really sad and frustrating and ugly in your 50s. At least that is my road.
I am thankful every day that I stuck with quitting and worked my way to actually being sober and doing the work of figuring out how to heal and be me without drugs or alcohol. It was a really long painful slog, but I stuck with it and when life, myself, everything seemed most dire and beyond repair…somehow I kicked it in gear and put one day in front of another.
If this aging grandma can get sober, anyone can.
Stick with it and never stop quitting. Waking up sober every day is the best feeling.
Thanks for being a great resource.
Time for yoga and then chocolate.
