5 words to describe your sobriety

Happy Friday everyone.
I’m part of a Facebook group called Alcohol Explained, which I recommend you join, very helpful.
Somebody asked the group to describe their sobriety in 5 words…of course, I got carried away. I’m posting my list for your inspiration…so you can think “oh yeah, there’s that benefit, and that, and that…”
Stay strong, keep going

Here’s my list…

This could be endless :
No more hangovers for me;
Leaving behind all that shit;
On a better path now;
I don’t need to apologise;
I remember what happened yesterday ;
Too many benefits to list…

And finally…
Yes, there’s loads of these!

:blush:

OK, just a few more…
I eat much better now
I sleep much better now
I work much better now
I think much clearer now
I’ve got more energy now
I drink much more water
I don’t get headaches now
I feel more optimistic now
I’ve stopped thinking about suicide
Think I’ve saved my marriage
Know I’ve saved my life
I’ve stopped swearing at strangers
My behaviour’s not disgusting anymore
I’ve stopped getting arrested now
I’m now safe driving cars
I’ve been taking my vitamins
My family don’t worry now
I’ve got back self respect
Sense of humour is returning
I’m now addicted to sobriety

Hope you all feel better
Stay strong, don’t go back

And (maybe) finally…

Probably update this list later!!!

Welcome. Well done for choosing sobriety, it will always be better thank your drunk life. Sleep will level out and improve in a few days. If you read my list at the top of this topic…truly so many benefits. I’ll give you what someone gave to me on day 1…“stick with it, you’ll feel like a weight’s been lifted”. That was the first time I’d actually considered just how much work it is being drunk- who have I told what lie to, what do I need to apologise for today, how am I going to get any sleep with this splitting headache, what excuse for ringing in sick can I use this time…etc etc etc etc etc…you know the rest. Like what the actual F??? 17 days in, my life is so much easier. You will face difficulties of course - that’s life- but you’ll face and deal with them more easily, with clarity and get infinitely better outcomes when you are sober.
Stay here, read others stories, how they are achieving their day3’s, day7’s… Use our support. It helps us if we help you.
Stay strong.
