I thought being sober would be soooo boring. I’m learning that peace of mind and good self esteem is anything but boring, it just takes getting used to.
I love being 100% conscious of what I say and do. I love that I don’t have to do forensics to piece together the night before. It’s delightful to move past a cycle of drunkenness and hangxiety.
The FOMO I had for awhile has completely gone away- I have more friends than ever before in my life, energy like I had decades ago, and a spark for adventure and fun.
I don’t miss one thing about drinking anymore. Enough of the struggle, planning, stress, shame, and feeling like a failure.
It’s never too late to start.
