The phenomenon of sobriety
The latest that I've realized.
Typically, in order to see something for what it is you must move towards it. Sobriety is the first situation I've encountered in life where distance was the only thing that provided me with true clarity.
Sometimes easier said than done, but the happiest and most content I am in sobriety is when I'm fully accepting of the fact that there is no circumstance under which I can drink (or smoke a cigarette!).
