Just Quit

A beautiful share by a badass woman last night in our Zoom brought back so many memories from my drinking years. She said that one day her man looked at her and said, “I love you and we have to do something about this”. She stopped drinking that day and has stayed stopped for over a year. I thought about how many people have asked me to quit. It was, pretty much, everyone who’s ever cared about me. Shit it’s even been strangers at bars, cab drivers, bouncers… I’d tell them I was going to cut back, actually try to do that, then beg for forgiveness when i drank the way I wanted to. Again. People are forgiving to an extent. But when I kept disappointing them, they seemed to disappear. Everyone but my mom and sis. They knew that if I could learn to live alcohol free that I’d be happier, healthier, wiser, calmer, nicer, more patient. They were right. It was nice to get some power back. My life wasn’t my own when king alcohol was ruling. I surrendered after losing thousands of battles. It’s really refreshing to live a drama free life and be a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen. Happy Friday, sober family. Keep it simple today.
