Alive - again, it’s a wonderful feeling to feel the brain gaining strength and your heightened alertness and awareness is switched on.
I’ve discovered Adult sober me. When I was 17 I started drinking, always binges in the beginning, 17 years later I’m drinking most days, 2 or three “home” measures of vodka and a 200 ml bottle was gone. I kept buying 200 ml bottles to fool myself that it wasn’t that much, eventually it wasn’t enough.
Days waking and having a hair of the dog to get to work, rather than just carry on a party, alcoholism was progressing. Holidays were dominated with drinking and partying, I was burning out and my body was giving up. I did not know sober me, as even if it were some time in the distant future I’d have my next drink planned and alcohol would be at work on my mind.
Now there’s no plotting or planning, I’m alive and I’m free, I have found sober me and I like him.
