So I know it’s alcohol awareness month. This month is also important to me because I just celebrated 8 months sober. I was drinking and using drugs in attempt to cope with the pain. But really it just made everything worse. It wasn’t fun anymore. Being sober has changed my life. I’m learning how to live again. I have a real chance of dealing with my mental health now and I just feel so grateful. There is a lot of days when I hate everything and being sober sucks and I want to drink; not feel. And then I have these moments where I feel like everything is gonna be alright. And that makes it all worth it.
