Well I have not posted in a while but that's because I have been so busy. When I re-entered life it was going at full speed so it has been an abrupt return for me. I look back on the days when I didn't do much but drink and I would often say that there wasn't anyting to do. Today I get more done by noon than I ever did in a week while I was drinking.
What I really like at almost 11 months is how differently I handle situations which used to baffle me. Now when I'm upset I take a moment instead of ranting about it. If I make a mistake I own up to it and move on and the world does not end. I no longer feel like I need to correct the world.
It's not that by quitting drinking that my life has gotten easy, life is hard, it's just that now I am dealing with my setbacks and problems like everyone else instead of pushing my problems down into the pit of repression. And you know what...It feels good.
