I decided one day that I didnâ€™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 wasnâ€™t a struggle. But the struggle isnâ€™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 donâ€™t care what anyone else does… you do you, boo. But when youâ€™re the only one sober in a social setting, everyone notices, offers you drinks all night and they donâ€™t like to accept â€œI just donâ€™t drinkâ€ as an answer.
Sometimes I want to lie and say Iâ€™m a recovering addict because then maybe people would stop trying to figure out what could be wrong with me that I donâ€™t want â€œjust oneâ€.
I just donâ€™t, k?
It has been one of the best decisions Iâ€™ve ever made and I intend to live the rest of my life sober.
