Transitions are like speed bumps. You need to slow down while approaching them.

Yesterday was officially 90 days of sobriety.
It is such a wonderful feeling.
Looking back to the beginning of February, I ABSOLUTELY couldn’t imagine life without drinking.
All of my friends did it… and they still do.
It’s basically the only thing that people did in my town… and that is still the case.

There are so many scenarios that I am in where it seems that drinking is a priority to people… but guess what? I have been able to enjoy them without drinking!

I look forward to many many many may more days of sobriety.
