Still keeping on…

Just wanted to check in and let you know that I am still here. Still joyfully alcohol free. Still living life as it comes. I am three years without wine and proud of that. I am starting to notice the wiring in my brain is definitely finding new ways of perceiving the “benefits” of alcohol. My unconscious mind quickly recognizes the mis-truths behind the cultural marketing story about how life cannot possibly be fun without a glass in hand. My experience of life with alcohol tells me another sad, sad story. Not so much fun being had when I drank. These days finds me up early, working hard to launch a new dream business, days filled with exciting conversations, ample time to get to the priorities in life, to bed on time each night after a hot tea and yoga practice. Sometimes even a sauna if time permits. My sober life is where the fun is found. No more isolating. No more sickness. No more despair. I love my life and the only thing that could derail the peace I feel would be a glass of full bodied ethanol. No thanks. Being here in this place now is worth all of the work it took to get here. Wishing you peace xox
