My First Step – Take a Break!
The 14th of March 2018 was my one year soberversary (yay me!) and what a year it was. The most surprising thing I’ve discovered is that the real work is only just starting. The preceding 12 months was about stopping digging the hole I was in and figuring out how to start climbing out. In the first 6 weeks after quitting, when the detox was hitting hard, it was those daily Take a Break e-mails that became my lifeline – I lived from e-mail to the next and I got quite irritated if it it came later than expected on any given day. If I had to give advice to someone who just doesn’t know where to start, signing up for Take a Break would be it.
Thank you to everyone involved in getting those nuggets of encouragement out every day, you guys rock
