One month sober!!

30 days! I am so grateful 😍

I am so very thankful to have made it this long. I finally realized I am unable to moderate alcohol. One drink for me always makes me want more and more. I am not able to control myself. I got drunk on my 13th Birthday for the first time and every time for over 30 years. I am thankful for every sober day. Thank you for the encouragement here, the eye opening stories that hit home for me, and the inspiration to make this my new life

Waking up feels so wonderful now. I am so grateful to be experiencing this. I went sledding today. It felt so good to be outside. The best part was running up the hills. My body feels so different. I have energy and I feel lighter. I felt so much joy today. I am so thankful for each sober day.
