Firstly I apologise for the shameless massive gym selfie, I don't know how to make it smaller. What a cheese ball haha. Anyway as I sit down to write this post, I am overwhelmed with emotion. It has been 4 years and 9 months since I took the courageous step to ditch the booze! I still remember the day I made the decision to take back control of my life, and I am filled with pride when I look back at how far I've come.
Being sober has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. It has allowed me to rediscover myself and my passions. I have been able to mend relationships that were once broken, and I have found new friendships that have become some of the most meaningful in my life.
Bee Sober CIC started as a way for me to connect with others who were going through the same struggles as me. I felt so alone in my journey towards sober living, and I knew there were others out there who must have felt the same way. Today, Bee Sober CIC has grown into a thriving community of people who just get it. We are there for each other through the ups and downs of sober living, and I am so proud of what we have accomplished together.
One of the things I love most about being sober is the freedom it has given me. I am able to make decisions that are in line with my values and goals. I have been able to pursue my passions and dreams, and I am finally excited about the future.
I am also grateful for the physical and mental benefits of sobriety. I have more energy, my skin is clearer, and my sleep has massively improved. My mental health has also improved, and I am able to manage stress and anxiety better than ever before.
Reaching 4 years and 9 months of sober living is a huge milestone for me. It is a testament to the hard work and dedication it takes to maintain a sober lifestyle. I am grateful for the support of my family, and the Bee Sober community and I am ridiculously excited about what the future holds.
If you are sick of hangovers, I encourage you to take the first step towards sober living. It is sometimes a difficult journey, the early days can be challenging, but hand on heart it is absolutely one that is worth taking. And if you need support, know that there are others out there who just get it. Bee Sober CIC is here for you, and we would love to welcome you into our community.
