6 months

I feel grateful to share with you all that today I have been sober for 6 months. If you are in those earliest days of sobriety or are struggling with sobriety, it really does get better. As you are sober one day at a time, alcohol will slowly lose its grip over you. The person that alcohol pushed down and hid inside of you will start to come out, and you may very well be amazed at who you really are. Sobriety is one of the best things to happen to me, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. Stick with it, and if you're not already there you'll find out one day exactly what I mean. Best wishes to all. We can do this.
