2 days sober
I posted on the newcomer's thread to introduce myself but thought I would here as well, being a gay man, for extra support, insights, etc. Only on my 2nd day today but feeling pretty good physically and mentally, and definitely excited for the road forward. Today I opened up to my partner and my mom about my decision and need to be alcohol free, and both are fully supportive and happy for me. Just tired of feeling like crap half the time, drunk the other half, and missing out on so much in life. I have a relatively great life that I had been letting pass me by. NO MORE! Already have gotten a lot from this site, and look forward to sharing more with you all and hearing your stories! Have a great day and keep fighting the good fight to you all, you are worth it!
Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are. -- Hafsat Abiola
