Hi Sober Tribe


It’s sober day 349 for me.

Going strong to one year and definitely going on from here. 


Over the last 11+ months, I’ve had many valuable lessons: how to accept my addiction and how to think (a lot) about alcohol and its consequences. 


Over time, sober has gradually become my new normal.

I don’t miss wine, I don’t miss beer and I don’t miss whiskey (but sometimes I still long for an Aperol Spritz, a cocktail I didn’t even use to drink that often). 


The last months have been for more than simply getting sober, it’s been a journey, taking time to reflect about my priorities, what brings me joy and stuff I need to face (instead of washing shitty days away with drinks). 


I left alcohol, resigned from my 21 years corporate job. I had to learn to better listen to people – without alcohol it’s harder for me to sit for hours after dinner, but instead of talking a lot, I’m now (a little bit more) able to actively listen to others. 


Getting sober is a bumpy road, but the journey with all of you on the sober bus has changed my life for good. 


All the best!

Kai
