Going To Bed Sober Again


Every 24 hours that I go to bed sober, and every morning that I wake up sober, I know I will have a better day than if I drank!
The problems I had last week, while drinking, have shrunk. Alcohol magnifies them like crazy. A clear mind has left them manageable.
Being without alcohol makes my life manageable. A huge stress is gone.
I know I will have some weak points. I know I will need a meeting or some time on here to read and post. But I also know that being sober is my #1 commitment. I read someone's post here and that made it so clear to me once again... that's all I need to do. Everything else is secondary. But I also know that in sobriety, everything becomes more meaningful.
Hugs everyone and may you have a wonderful day and hope for peace.
Grat

Yep, going to sleep sober is Great, but waking up without that pounding head, guilt and sorrow, trying to remember what you did the night before aint bad either. Stay Strong, it is worth it. Have a Great Day.

Totally agree! I don't freak over the small stuff with a clear had and no panic. I feel like I manage my life and reactions so much better. Every day I feel more in control and confident. Alcohol really is a poison. Glad you are feeling better. Doesn't it feel great!!!
