90 days sober:
Who the hell was this girl?
I remember being sad, unhappy, anxious and severely depressed... so I drank.
I would drink socially, I would drink alone, I would drink to forget, and I would drink to have fun.
I lost friendships over alcohol, I ruined personal relationships over it & I was starting to lose myself. I had let myself go, completely oblivious to my weight gain but when pointed out, blamed it on being in love. & I was in love; in love with the idea of having/needing that drink in my hand.
Last night I celebrated ninety days of sobriety that was long overdue. I don't think it matters what lead me here, but instead what keeps me here.
I smile so much more. I wake up with no regrets from the night before, I wake up feeling rested. I make decisions without impaired judgement. When I'm with my nieces, I'm REALLY there. & finally back to a happy and healthy weight & eating right.
I found this new confidence & I don't need that liquid courage to bring it out, (not even on the dance floor). #overshare #sobriety #newme #happiness #paradise #illusion #whiskeyways #strongerthanyesterday #singlegirl #confidence #sober #liquidcourage #notwhoiusedtobe #whiskeymademedoit #jackdaniels #memoryloss #lol #blackout #drink #drank #drunk
