Alcohol-Free Living

Alcohol-Free Living

The 90 Day Journey That Started It All.

I finally decided to ditch the shame and tell my story. The only lesson I needed to learn is that the obstacle IS the way.

In January, 2019, I started my alcohol-free journey with 90 days of abstinence from alcohol. I journaled [almost] every day about my ups and downs. It was enlightening and refreshing and a time in my life that when I did drink again, I always missed. Since that ninety days, I tried two more times before trying to moderate again. “Slippery slope” is an understatement. Then I got it.

It’s taken me YEARS to get here…years and lots of lessons. I thought I had this thing licked; I didn’t. I thought I could moderate. I didn’t want to. I thought the failures made me weak. They don’t.

What makes us weak is not realizing we are human. We can start over on a Monday, in the middle of the month or after we think it’s too late. We can make mistakes, learn and try again. And again and again and again. We can rock the boat, buck traditions, change the rules.
