It wasn't easy, but it's worth it!

Going alcohol free was the best decision I ever made for myself. 

Invaluable Lessons I Learned While Saying Goodbye to Booze. 

Decreased Depression & Anxiety

For years, I underestimate the impact of alcohol on my mental well-being. I was aware of its depressant nature, but never truly believed it applied to me.

Without alcohol I am grateful to have significantly lowered the levels of depression and anxiety, revealing the true weight alcohol carried in my life.

Life's greatest lessons are often learned through the toughest experiences.

Your self image is not defined by how others perceive you,
but how you perceive yourself.

An Improved Self Image

In the past, I held onto the illusion alcohol added a touch of allure to my personality. Yet, a simple glance at old pictures shattered that belief. Instead of seeing a glamorous version of myself, I saw a red-nosed, squinty-eyed reflection.

It was a humbling reminder true beauty and authenticity shine brightest when unmasked by alcohol's influence.

Appreciating My Introverted Nature

Alcohol may have temporarily made me more talkative, but I've come to appreciate and embrace my natural quiet and somewhat introverted nature.

Sobriety has allowed me to discover the beauty in silence, deepening my connection with myself and others in a more genuine way.

Dont underestimate me because I am quiet. I know more than I say, think more than I speak and observe more than you know.

If at first you don't succeed, try try try again.

Increased Self Compassion

Lastly, there were moments in the early stages of my journey when I allowed myself a glass of wine. Instead of berating myself, I chose to view it as an opportunity for growth. It became a chance to identify triggers and develop strategies to navigate similar scenarios in the future.

 

Each setback became a stepping stone towards a stronger, more resilient version of myself.
