It’s so crazy how much I thought I’d miss alcohol in my life. I could not imagine my life without it. I tried! And I pictured every future fantasy with a wine glass in my hand.
Then I couldn’t imagine going on drinking like I was. It was exhausting to live that double life.
I was well and truly fearful to have a go at life without alcohol, but I just had to try.
I just kept telling myself not to worry about the future, just to get through the next few minutes or hours without a drink.
And the longer I went alcohol free, the better I felt.
Now instead of feeling deprived, I’m grateful to be missing out… on fear, shame, remorse, poor self esteem, lying, and deep emptiness.
Keep it simple today.
