Legit to quit

I knew I had a problem with alcohol for a long time before I did anything about it. I’d say foxhole prayers promising that if I got out of certain situations I’d never drink again. Sometimes I’d wake up hungover and promise myself I’d never touch another drop. I learned over the years, though, that if I told actual people I was quitting they’d ACTUALLY BELIEVE ME. Well that didn’t work out. I didn’t want a conscience hanging out with me. I had my own guilt to handle, thank you very much. I remember saying to one of my friends a few years ago, “I’m not going to drink unless there’s a good reason to”. She sent no less than 30 laughing emojis and said, “don’t you always have a reason?” I went to a high school reunion after being dry for two months. I didn’t stay dry for two months and a day. I stopped making empty promises. When I was finally ready to stop my inner circle knew it but I just didn’t want to jinx myself and tell the world. In time, a lot of people asked me why I was looking so much younger, healthier, and happier. I didn’t need to tell them…I showed them instead. People being attracted to a happy life is nothing new. What was new was that I was finally legitimately happy. Nothing’s more valuable. Happy Monday, sober family. Keep it simple today.
