Story telling

My life has been a journey of attempting to be the best version of me. Unfortunately I always failed, time after time, because of my addiction. I wanted so bad to improve my life and swore I would but every day I would drink and forget about my ultimate goal. My brain was wired to drink. I couldn’t survive without it and I envied those who could… About 3 years ago I started the Keto diet, you know “to be my best self”. But this diet simply allowed me to get drunk quicker because I ate less. My focus then became eating less so I can spend less on alcohol but still get drunk. It was a mess and honestly a long story when you throw in my mental illness, smh.

But 7 months ago I gave up alcohol, I knew it was time. It was the best decision I ever made. I am finally fulfilling my goal of being my best self and constantly finding ways to improve. Today I am healthy and at peace with my journey and success so far. The road to sobriety is a hard one but totally worth it :ok_hand:

The picture tells it all…


Right on! We learn more, we do things differently and we grow. Thanks and congrats on your time!

Thank you! It’s nice to have others that understand this. I now love being sober because it allows me to focus on figuring this out!


Good Job msan, I’ ll get there one day on my 2 month. Question do you still feel symptoms from time to time just asking. Congrats on 7 months big accomplishment some people don’t get that far.

Thank you! As far as symptoms I assume you are talking about cravings. I rarely get any cravings now.Honestly, I now rarely even have thoughts about alcohol unless I am in a extremely stressful situation and then I may have a brief craving but i can handle it now. It does take time though. I know the first 2-3 months were still tough for me but it gets better.

Best wishes on your journey! :heart:

Wonderful!! Congrats on 7 months, keep it up :+1:

7 months is awesome! Congrats. I was also hardwired to drinking. Barely ate, just drank. The less I ate the more I could drink. Was horrible. But fk yeah on 7 months. You look great and healthy!
