I'm sober yehhh

I can't believe it. My eyes are white and clear. My brain is still foggy but better. I'm finally doing this. It's been over a year of trying with no hope. Then my stomach started to hurt. I woke up scared and lonely. That went on for a week. All I wanted to do was go to the bar by 12 noon when they opened and pour myself in bed at night. So, I prayed real hard and God answered me. Honey he said, get off your ass and quit drinking.
Well maybe not in those words.
I went back to work, got some new deals together and things look better. No my budget isn't fixed yet. It didn't get broke over night so it will take a while to fix I feel like I can do this for the first time. I am studying the steps and reading the text book, you know, the big book. It is a text book. My sponsor told me that 2 years ago, but I didn't get it. I think I get it now.
Good luck to all of you. I will pray that we all make it in this journey.
Diana

Looking more alive along with waking up with the wonderful realization that I hadn't drank myself into a coma the night before and actually wasn't hungover were two of the initial benefits I experienced in the first few weeks! Even better news is that the gifts keep coming as long as you stay sober & work on your recovery, welcome!

Yay Diana! What wonderful news.

I was older, too, when I finally was ready to let go of that sick way of life. This time it's for good. I know you will have a beautiful new beginning. Very proud of you!

Diana,

it all gets better without alcohol. When you spoke about a foggy brain you reminded me how I would forget things towards the end and I thought I had done permanent damage.

I think I work better and am way more efficient on all levels due to less anxiety due to no alcohol.

It is a wonderful journey

Love
CaiHong
