I made it to my first year mark. Last week I celebrated with my mother with dinner and also had a few friends congratulate me but other than that it’s been pretty low key… Kind of like my sobriety now. I don’t think of myself as sober or even as an alcoholic. I’m just a guy who doesn’t drink.
I’ve often said this but it bears repeating that I wish I could share how I got here but I have no idea. Somehow I’ve had a completely painless time staying sober. There’s never been one moment where I seriously thought about drinking and in the past 6 months I haven’t even had a craving.
With my year done, I am ending this blog. I’m not going to delete it and I’m keeping my same WordPress account to move on to bigger and better things so I’ll still stay in touch with friends but I don’t feel like there’s anything else to say here. Writing about my sobriety doesn’t excite me like it used to. Maybe I’ll write a more objective addiction blog; I’ve always wanted to do something more professional. I’m not sure yet. Thank you to everyone whose been here from day one (Nelson) and good luck in your own journeys.
