Extremely grateful for #sober#weekends ; that sense of actually having a weekend and not losing it to a blur of being constantly #drunk , with no clue of what - or why - you actually did with your time.
Living; trying (its a constant process), in #sobriety for me has meant things are so much 'better' in everything - better home atmosphere, better mindset, better control of anxiety and irritation, better friendships, better life.
You must - have to - work at it; nobody gonna improve your life for you for free; you really (and I mean 'really') have to want that thing. It will test your limits, it will push you to corners of your mind you had no idea existed - but, if you truly want it, it will be so rewarding.
I had the most incredible Saturday - seeing my two oldest friends (literally, we met on the first day of school). And it was a blast! I luv waking up on a #Sunday with no wicked hangover, no aching body, no cloudy memory, no waking up dreading the online banking statement of what the damage was for the night before. And actually being able to recall everything; every single conversation, place visited, thing done with true clarity and peace of mind.
Much respect to all those in sobriety - be it one day, one week, one month, one year or ten years - you're progress and growth (and your story) gives help, support and inspiration to many others who fall into the vicious circle of #alcohol#addiction .
I am a @zomatogold user. Were you get 2 + 2 on drinks and 1+1 on food. There are variety of restaurants registered under Zomato gold so you can try all of them and explore new places. Prices are budget friendly too. Right now I am at @socialoffline and enjoying my #sobersundays ordered : black label butter chicken, sizzler and lemonade.
Last night I woke up in a panic. My dream is still so vivid through the morning fog. I was trapped in a fenced in area and my family was on the other side. There were many escape routes I could see beyond my immediate enclosure but i could not find a way to get to them. I couldn't focus on the problem right in front of me to get to the other choices. If that is not a thinly veiled metaphor for getting sober I don't know what is. (day 6) #sober#tryingtogetsober#sobersundays#justthebeginning
