Today marks 100 days of me being sober. I never thought I’d be able to do it, I honestly thought I’d be in my room drinking my life away until it inevitability kills me. It hasn’t been easy at all, especially with the whole world kinda falling apart, but I have to say I’m in a much better mind space without it. Drinking sure felt comfortable but I feel a lot more comfortable now without it. I used to spend every day drinking whenever I could, it used to take up at least half of my day (I don’t have a life due to mental illness and anxiety so I stay home all the time) and if someone was so invite me out usually I would choose drinking over seeing someone. It can become so consuming. (Now here’s the positive speech) if I can do it then it’s definitely not impossible for you to do it. Yes, it is a slow and a hard road to finally quit but if you really want it then it is possible. I say ‘really want it’ because for a lot of the time I was drinking I didn’t want to stop, it was something that made me feel safe and controlled my mood swings, but in the end it really didn’t help me and I’m so glad (I think) I’m out of it.
I’m so sorry if I have followers that are reading this still down the dark hole of using alcohol to temporarily fix their problems, it’s such a hard battle to fight, but I have hope that you can win that fight.
If anyone wants to message me about coping with trying to quit then you can ✨
I love you all, stay safe.
