I used only to have one birthday month, and now I have two. The first one is my actual birth month, August, and my second birth month is when I stopped drinking, December. So this December marks three years of sobriety.
I can’t believe it has been two years since I made the decision to not drink anymore. I didn’t tell anyone. I didn’t yet have it figured out how to be in that new space. It wasn’t even a space that I had occupied. Not in a long time.
