I've had 10 different months to celebrate my journey so far. The first month felt like such a huge accomplishment, the next few months anniversaries weren't as monumental but that time was so full of strive and work to get to know myself again. Not I'm at 10 months and it feels like a big deal again. Maybe it is the double digits, maybe it is the cumulative effects of feeling great, but I'm looking to celebrate where I stand.
So in the last 10 months what has changed:
The downfalls of 10 months sober? None when I think thought the affects of actual drinking. I still hang out with my drinking friends the same, maybe leaving a bit more early from gatherings. Sometimes boredom because I can't escape with drinks, but I've been bored when drinking too. So, no regrets.
I can drink with the best of them, but I don't want to anymore. But really I do sometimes.
