500 Days



500 days…

…of recovery. …of real life. …without a hangover. …dealing with feelings instead of numbing them out. …remembering everything I say and do. …making better choices. …not panicking when I run out of champagne. …without “liquid swagger” controlling my every move. …not purchasing multiple bottles in different stores or on PrimeNow. …without giving into an obsession or craving. …being present in conversations. …without secrets. …with a REALLY great therapist. …waking up without panic. …of humility, grace, and forgiveness. …without blackouts. …of better health. …unwinding with pilates instead of prosseco. …repairing relationships. …of saying goodbye to those that were not worth repairing. …not having to plan my schedule around my drinking. …picking up the phone instead of a wine glass. …of SO MUCH La Croix. …that end with quiet, peaceful evenings. …enjoying eating whatever the hell I want. …of no shame or self-loathing. …with restful sleep. …of self-control. …of letting go. …finding myself. …being myself. …loving myself. …one day at a time.
