I decided one day that I didn’t want to drink anymore (I rarely did in the first place). It was a choice I made as a way to live healthier and happier. So, cheers! 🙂
I would be lying if I said it wasn’t a struggle. But the struggle isn’t a craving or a need for a drink, I have literally no desire for alcohol and the thought of it makes me start to feel sick.
The hardest part is the socializing. I don’t care what anyone else does… you do you, boo. But when you’re the only one sober in a social setting, everyone notices, offers you drinks all night and they don’t like to accept “I just don’t drink” as an answer.
Sometimes I want to lie and say I’m a recovering addict because then maybe people would stop trying to figure out what could be wrong with me that I don’t want “just one”.
I just don’t, k?
It has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and I intend to live the rest of my life sober.
