Hello again!


Hi! Natasha here again!

I'm on two weeks and one day and I am reaping the benefits! I knew that I would feel better, but I noticed a tiny thing this morning. Usually, when I'm on my bus Monday morning, if I see someone I know, I usually try to hide so I don't have to engage with anyone, as I feel so anxious and terrible. This morning my friend got on and I shouted out her name and waved and she sat next to me and we giggled and chatted all the way to town! It was a great start to my Monday. A Monday that wouldn't have happened three weeks ago!

Thank you Sober Recovery people!

Lots of love
Natasha
Xxxx

Excellent story. Funny how we repond to others when sober and how they respond to us.

Cool stuff!

I remember avoiding people as well. Out of fear of drenching the smell of the hard weekend on my breath.
