I am 60 + days since I quit drinking. It was time for those that don’t know. I have since I was 13 off and on. My 20s it got bad. Then I had 2 kids. Settled down a lot. Long story short. Became a functioning alcoholic. I finally gave it up. Now so many things are changing. I want so much more out of life. Only thing I regret is not doing it sooner. I want to go back to school. (Im 36) I just figure I still have life to live right. Go back to school get a degree. Takes a few years and do something I love. I broke up with my boyfriend today. We have been together since October of 2020. He’s a good person. I just realize that we are wanting different things out of life. It’s okay. I guess the point of this post is to vent my thoughts/plans/actions. Get it out. Get feedback and any input. I feel strong on the alcohol free part. The losing the boyfriend. It does hurt and it is hard. I just know it’s not fair to either of us to keep putting my happiness on the back burner to keep the peace. I am excited to learn. Excited to grow. Ready to live. Meet new people. Be me, someone I never knew because I was too traumatized and scared. Take away my shell and defense mechanism and use my gifts. Just kinda needed to get that all off my chest thank you. I know everyone has struggles out there don’t forget to make smart choices and it’s never too late…. Ever !
It’s never too late! And you’re young! It sounds like you are making great changes and great plans to secure a fulfilling future. Inspiring!
Much love Kristy I know loss and it’s sucks thanks again also shower time
Had a shower made a coffee did what you said it helped I feel refreshed You got this also girl!!!
Thank you and yes I’m doing my best, it’s for me this time around ! I’m excited !
Yes !!! I’m so glad. I had done this before and tried to stay strong didn’t know how to control a lot of my feelings and emotions at that time. So I kept jumping back on the rollercoaster. Guess I just wasn’t ready to get off yet. I am now. With people like you who understand. This app has been a huge help as well. Just being able to vent express and get the support. Thankful grateful and even on the hard days . I’m able to get through them easier now. Just so damn excited 🏻
This is a amazing tool for us struggling and it is awesome too meet great people like you and so many others!
So nice to just vent and get very caring people that actually care about what we have to say.
Exactly , makes a difference. Sometimes it doesn’t take much but a little of kindness. Truly does go a long way!
So true Kristy
Congratulations on your 60 days Kristi!! Such a wise and healthy choice!!! Sorry about the bf, but it happens for sure and life always has more in store for us. Good for you on going back to school…I did the same in my late 30s and finished my 2 degrees 10 years apart…it was a really great experience for me and a busy time for sure. It is definitely never too late and 30s are life just getting started from my perspective in my 60s now. Very happy for you!! The struggle is so worth it…YOU are worth it!!
