Woohoo! I made it to a Year Sober.
Not one single alcoholic drink has entered my bloodstream for a whole Year.
I am immensely proud of my achievement and determination to get here. It’s not been an easy thing, But, it does get easier.
I still suffer with anxiety and my BPD raises it’s tormented head quite regularly, but Because I AM SOBER, I am better equipped to deal with it.
I am getting regular exercise, I socialise occasionally, and generally everything is getting easier. I have discovered that I enjoy being useful, I like to help and make others lives easier/better. Considering how selfish I was during active addiction, I am amazed at how good I feel when I can do something nice for someone else.
I am a nicer person now that I am sober. Everything in my life is generally nicer. I have slowly regained the trust of my family and friends.
I am living my Best Life. It’s nowhere near a Perfect Life, but it’s a great one, and I am so glad to be here.
I regularly interact with other people in recovery, although I don’t go to AA. I am involved in online support groups, which have helped me immensely, especially when I have felt triggered or alone in sobriety.
I obviously read or listen a lot to recovery/sober writing… Also books on mindfulness have been a great help.
I am building a wonderful support network in recovery, and I am so happy and grateful for that every day.
