60 Days Sober
60 Days Sober 🦏
Things you might expect to happen when walking through sobriety…
-Some people will not want to be your friend anymore (and that’s OKAY)
-You won’t want to be friends with certain people anymore (and that’s OKAY)
-Some people will want to know all the details of your past drinking habits (usually they’re trying to decide if they have an issue with alcohol themselves, don’t take offense)
-You’ll tolerate less.
-You’ll tolerate more.
-You’ll have emotions, suppressed feelings and even memories come out nowhere (and it’ll suck while you’re working through it all)
-You’ll realize that you are still funny, even sober
-You’ll sleep better
-You feel everything (it feels super raw and vulnerable in the beginning)
-You’ll cry…A LOT
-You feel out of control most days
-You doubt your decision of sobriety often by questioning if you really even had an issue to begin with
-You evaluate your past mistakes that were alcohol induced and beat yourself up
-You start to learn to forgive yourself for said mistakes
-You crave sugar more because you’re not consuming it through alcohol
-You have instances of outright rage
-You realize how many people have issues with alcohol
-You learn things that truly make you never want to drink again… like that the World Health Organization has named Alcohol a Group 1 Carcinogen, right up there with arsenic and asbestos
-You feel like you’re losing your ever loving mind and even question sometimes if you’re on the brink of a psychotic meltdown…but then realize it’s part of the process while you break the hold habits, start feeling everything you’ve numbed for so long, your brain grows back, and you start becoming who you’re truly meant to be
These are just a few of my feelings & experiences over the last 60 days…
I am so freakin’ proud of myself.
I owe this sobriety to myself.
No more hiding.
