Took some time off my blog but I'm back!!
I can't even begin to tell you how amazing it is waking up on and the day after your Birthday with ZERO hangover in sight! TO me this is part of the freedom train of recovery and choosing to live a life of sobriety.
For years in my addiction I spent legit every Birthday waking up on October 5th and the day after feeling like death. Ashamed of my actions, anxiety so bad I felt like I was going to die and the voice inside me that always said, "this year I'm going to control my drinking and not be such a pig!"
Does this sound familiar to anyone?
It took me a few Birthday's in recovery to mourn the loss of what my old Birthday's were and realize how going forward they would look. It's been a good different, one without booze and ones that I control with whatever I feel like doing! To me that is the greatest gift I could give myself, year after year!
It's hard to believe some days that I have spent ALL of my thirties Sober, 6 straight Birthdays of this beautiful life. You may be reading this and thinking "can I do this?" The answer is YES, yes you can.
