4 years! I never anticipated I would remove alcohol from my life and be happy about it and one hundred percent ok with it. But I did and I could not be happier.
Alcohol did not serve me. It was not what was best for me ever in any amount. I couldn’t just have one and hated the taste. I drank to forget, to be numb. Oxy moron now that I can’t remember and my left side and lip are legit numb from my accident and brain injury.
It’s been an easy feat for me. I often wonder, would it be this easy had I not had my TBI? I will never know, but I do know alcohol is not healthy and it is bad for you and I am glad I don’t have to worry about one more negative thing in my body.
I don’t care if people choose to drink and can do so without harming their life or others. But I can’t so I don’t. I still have fun and can do anything I used to, I just don’t ever have to plan my drinking or find a drink.
I couldn’t be more proud of myself and doing what’s best for me. I am better because of it.
