Irene is one of our Tribe Sober members who has reached 365 days or one year! It is not easy but it is so worth it!
I recently told one of my dear Tribe Sober chums that getting to the one-year milestone was like letting some air out of an over-pumped tyre. Still tense but a lot of pressure released.
There were so many things throughout the year that I wasn’t expecting. The biggest being the actual success of getting here, the increasing awareness of ‘self’ without the abuse of ‘the nasty’ and the realisation that I had been in total oblivious denial of the state my life was in.
Do I wake full of the joys of Spring every morning? No! Am I thriving in my sobriety? Not yet! Am I still on my journey upwards and onwards with friends that have my back? I certainly hope so! Am I forever grateful for that friendship and wisdom freely given that IS Tribe Sober, that will eventually give me the life I’m happy to live? ABSABLOODYLUTELY!
