Yes, life goes on, but that doesn’t mean I can’t be a little sad sometimes, right? Right.
I remember feeling like this occasionally in the days leading up to my quit date, knowing full well what I was about to do. But I was still absolutely determined to go through with it.
Once I did quit, I shut even that little bit of sadness down and focused on appreciating the benefits of sobriety. This was crucial for me in the beginning.
And now I’ve let a little sadness back in. But I don’t think it will get much worse. I just want to pout and sulk a bit, just for a while.
Even writing this, I can feel my mood lifting slightly.
Happy Sober Wednesday,
