Why I stopped drinking alcohol

Today is my one month anniversary of when I took my last drink.  It has not been an easy choice, with all the withdrawals, feeling like I need a drink and just dealing with people that don’t understand why I’m doing this.  With all the negatives gone now I feel great, life has improved and things are just looking up.

With today’s society making it out like you need to have a drink to celebrate, you need to have a drink when you’re down and you need to have a drink to get together with friends, its easy to fall into a seemingly never ending drinking party.  At the age of 26 I’ve decided to take my life back and start enjoying my life without a buzz, without the daze of alcohol that makes everything okay for a short period of time.  Let me tell you its been great!  After suffering with insomnia for years and never being able to fall asleep without alcohol, I’ve realized I just needed to kick that habit completely! Now I can fall asleep easily and wake up feeling refreshed.  My skin is looking great and I just feel healthy and the best part for me is feeling happy without needing alcohol.

Letting go of my party girl habits, have made me actually get to know myself and start loving more.  You might think giving alcohol up makes you a boring person, but sitting drinking gets very repetitive, now that’s boring!

For the first time in a long time I feel completely happy, content, healthy and I feel like I’m living life.

I never thought sobriety would be for me, but now its the only way for me. I wake up every morning happy that I don’t have a hangover and I can kick the days ass.  I can’t wait to see what is yet to come.
