Day 30: Sober Momentum

I stumbled upon a couple of unexpected gifts this morning. I decided to go back and read my blog posts, starting with the T- days when I was counting down to my quit date. What a gift to be able to get back into my drinking-is-misery head for a moment and recall again why I’m doing this no-alcohol thing.

And then I kept going and read my first two weeks of sobriety. Another gift – to realize how much better I’m feeling now compared to then.  It’s just a couple of weeks later and I’m not craving wine, not worrying about replacement drinks or treats to get through another day.

And it dawned on me – I have sober momentum.  And if you’ve ever had sober momentum in your life and then given it up and missed it, like I did, you know what a gift it is.  I gave this gift to myself. And I’m feeling pretty pleased about it.

Happy thirty days to me.

If you are doing this hard thing and struggling, please keep going. It will get better and you will be happy you did it.

Jenwithoutwine (and with sober momentum. and pride. and relief. and hope.)

  1. Congratulations x 30! I never blog when I fail but you have a great point that documenting those crap days can be motivational. Even though you aren’t concerned with daily treats, I hope you treat yourself to something nice for 30 days!

  2. “The most important aspect of being on a spiritual path may be to just keep moving” ~Pema Chodron
    Or perhaps also of being on a sober path when we find we have “proud, relieved, hopeful sober momentum.”
    Congratulations on 30 days Jen! I feel your joy and your resolve. It is a beautiful thing how you see the gifts in all the days that came before. Feel better and enjoy the peace and blessings of this day.
