I know that I can’t drink. My sobriety is too important to me. If I were to drink again it would be the same thing all over again, and I’m not ready for that yet.
Drinking alcohol feels like a comfort because it’s what I’ve done my whole life, but in reality drinking alcohol is anything but comforting.
It brings nothing but pain and chaos into my life and every time I have a sip of alcohol it just reminds me how much more work there is left to do on myself before this addiction will lose its power over me completely.
All these feelings are brought up when you’re sober, so why risk going back?
