4 Years - Obligated To Mark This Moment

I feel like I should at least mention that it has been 4 years since I last had a drink and decided that hey, I'm going to seriously ruin my life if I keep drinking.

The incontrovertible truth was that I was taking yet another sick day off of work.  This just shouldn't be the case.

Anyway, I'm sober.

Here's what sobriety doesn't equal:



lack of boredom

perfect embodiment of ideals

So don't figure that it will deliver those goods, that is, if you decide you might try it out for a spin.

I'm a big fan of your blog. Have been reading it for sometime now and wan't to thank you for enlightening my life, but I have to say that I completely disagree with this individual post. Congratulations on your 4th consecutive year of sobriety; but when you say being sober doesn't equal these things I lost you. I almost thought I miss read it and figured you meant "Here's what sobriety equals", instead of what it doesn't. Since I've been sober, which has been one of the toughest ongoing-accomplishments of my life to date, I've found my life has taken on a whole new meaning and it has been so satisfying to me. I have been able to create authentic relationships, set goals that I can accomplish with a clear mind, focus on my health, and so on.. I find that not feeling like shit all the time and actually having energy to go out and discover the beauty of this world has cured the boredom that I once had when my soul rested at the bottom of an empty bottle. I hope things look up for you and that you realize that if you don't look at the world with such a negative perspective there is incredible beauty out there! This video helps me in my times when i'm feeling down.
