Thank you to Athalia for writing a blog comment to bring me back here! I haven't written and I haven't been drinking either. Living a life of soda water, self respect, yoga, good sleep and fun with people who still drink. I couldn't ask for anything more really. I continue to be in a really good spot with myself and because of that the ups and downs that life brings me are taken in stride.
This blog is about to expire, and I can't decide if I should pay to keep it active...it is just sitting here. I don't feel the need to write because the not-drinking isn't a central concern anymore, but, but might this blog sitting here be needed for someone on a day one at any point? Can my notes of the walk into the dark of a new identity and rediscovering myself be a service to others?
