Today I am officially 100 days sober! I seriously can’t even believe that I have this huge milestone to celebrate. It seems like just yesterday that I was hitting the three-week mark. I’ve been wanting to record this episode for a while now, because there are truly so many things I’ve learned about alcohol (and sobriety for that matter) since I stopped drinking. If any of this resonates with you, maybe consider taking a month, week, or even a day without consuming alcohol. If you choose to do so, let me know how it goes!
When I first stopped drinking, I re-downloaded the app “I Am Sober” to start tracking my sobriety journey and ensure that I had something to hold myself accountable. Each day when you make a pledge to refrain from alcohol, the app gives you a fun little quote for motivation. On January 1st, the prompt I received was, “Not all storms come to disrupt your life. Some come to clear your path.” That quote has stuck with me over the past 100 days. I truly feel that the chaotic shit storm that was New Year Eve cleared a path to a new chapter of life. I’ll be honest, whenever I used to hear my sober friends talking about how quitting drinking was the best choice they ever made, I used to think they were exaggerating. Now, I can confidently tell you that, if they feel the same way I do, they were 100% serious. I truly feel that I am a better friend, daughter, sister, and person without alcohol. Without a doubt, quitting drinking was the best decision I ever made for myself.
