101 days!!!

101 days of sobriety.

101 days ago, I was miserable and confused. I hated myself and I hated my life, but I didn't think sobriety was the answer. I didn't want to give up my coping skill of alcohol.

Now, I realize it never was a coping skill at all- rather, a substance I used to stay a child, to stay stuck. I thought alcohol was helping me deal with my problems, but in reality it was making them sooo much worse.

I have a community now. I have a sponsor. I have friends. I have clarity. I feel better and look better.

Now, I'm afraid of alcohol. Afraid of how it could ruin me and this beautiful new way of life I've been given. I have faith. And I wouldn't trade that for anything.

Well done on your day count. Hopefully, it's not a case of Room 101 now!
