I’m new here. Seven days in.
I’ve been sober before–once for a few years about a decade ago–but that involved an abusive ex-wife and was more enforced sobriety than my choice. Now, I am finally tired of feeling controlled by alcohol. Tired of telling myself I can stop after one when I know that’s a lie.
The revelation I had this morning is that choosing to be sober is positive, while feeling deprived of alcohol is negative.
Overall, it’s going well. I appreciate a place to listen and to share.
