Four Months, 600 Drinks


Today, I am four months’ sober. I have bypassed an estimated (on the low side) 600 drinks.

That’s five drinks a day, which takes into account the few days now and then that I would not drink. I usually had more like six or seven in a day. Six hundred drinks. Imagine …

I haven’t posted in a while but want to get back to it because I feel the pull of drinking again and I have lost a bit of my resolve. I seem normal now, and the past is easy to bypass as something that happened a long time ago to someone else entirely. I need to refocus on the goal of sobriety, and that means thinking about what led me here to begin with. How I renewed myself with your help.

I am grateful to the sober universe out there. I owe these sober days to you. : )
