Day 6. One nice thing is that time is flying this second time around.

Last time I did this each day felt so slow. A week felt like a month. Reaching day 7 was a very long ride.

This time, its moving swiftly.

My understanding of sobriety and sober life is still in its early stages, but I do feel this time around to have a slighter more in-depth understanding of what it means.

My understanding this time around is slightly more REALISTIC.

I am finally understanding, for example, how HARD this path can be. I have to constantly remind myself, however, that drinking life is still HARDER! Drinking the way I was is the definition of a truly HARD life.

So yes, this sober life is not going to be a bed of roses, and there will be times when it feels impossible to stay sober through my anxiety and stress. But that feeling will always be a lie.

I pray that I remember this ALWAYS.


Thanks.

Absolutely. The drinking life is harder! It is so obvious but so easy to forget.

I'm finding the time, too, is starting to move more quickly. It gets easier, and gets better.

Keep up the great work you are doing! We are in it together!
