9 months sober

15 Oct

I have been woefully absent from the blogging world, stealing brief moments to read and comment.

I’ve been marking recovery milestones with posts, and it feels fantastic to type the words ‘9 months sober.’ 9 whole months. That’s insane.

Sobriety seemed so out of reach- without trying, I had become addicted to alcohol, with no sense of how I could escape. Yet here I stand.

Today’s post is very brief. All I want to say is:

        Do you think that some folk might think that we are twirling whilst holding hot tea?! I will put the tea down, before the twirl!

    Congratulations! I’m happy and envious – I would have been where you are today, almost to the day, but I tried the silly idea of moderation back in the spring. I’m on Day 3 today 🙂
