Day 13 controlling your own emotions

hello good morning from Sacramento Cali

I am Jessica Ramirez age 25.

I am truly blessed too say this is the first time in 5 years I decided not too drink a drop of alcohol. So far it’s going amazingly great. I grew up around alcoholics and started drinking by the age of 20. It was all fun and games until One day I started blacking out and hurting those in my surroundings. Even my family was breaking apart until three months ago my mother decided too leave alcohol and so did my sister . I’m so proud of them. They kept me motivated and first off God did​:heart::pray:t2:
I lost 12 pounds sense my sobriety. All this time I wondered why I couldn’t lose the weight. It was all that sugar retained in alcohol. But guess what I’m proud too say. I’m HANGOVER FREE. A few times it almost caused my death- alcohol poison or dehydration. People I use too drink with didn’t care about my daughter and I. Men I met in my life wouldn’t take me serious. Maybe I was just that fun party girl :woman_shrugging:t2: Nevertheless this year is a challenge for new beginnings :star: God bless u guys.

I started by blocking people who have heavy consumption of alcohol all the time. Started keeping myself busy by working two jobs plus being a single mom. Started making new friends who have healthier environment. Started making choices I never usually would do. And reminding myself I can lose it all over a small time of joy .
