AfterPartyChat continued its “what does someone with XXX days sober look like?” series.
I can tell how much I was really white knuckling those first few weeks—just focusing so hard on not picking up a drink. Reading that made me grateful that the actual act of not drinking has gotten a lot easier. I still think I’m struggling a little with the A word. I’m comfortable calling myself that in meetings and amongst really, really close friends but that’s about it. I know I can’t drink normally and I know I had to come to terms with the reality of being an alcoholic to get where I am now but it’s still hard to say, even to myself.
Cool peek into the life of someone just starting out in recovery.
