One guy's experiences as he quits drinking

One whole day

I have nothing exciting to say at the moment.

I went a whole day without thinking about alcohol or sobriety or quitting. I realised while I was doing my grocery shopping: I walked past my local bottle shop and thought “Gee I haven’t been in there for ages – I used to be a regular”. That’s when I paused and couldn’t remember the last time I’d thought about alcohol or anything to do with quitting. It was a nice moment.

I have 9 days until my one year soberversary – and sober feels pretty normal now. The honeymoon period has passed and that’s a good thing. I can spend more time focussed on living and less time thinking about drinking (or not drinking).
