It is early days of course but some signs that I'm on the long path back to being normal are already beginning to show themselves.
Whilst washing up yesterday I found that some bowls were perched precariously in the cupboard as I put them away. Usually, I would just add another to the wobbling pile and hope for the best but this time I took them all out and restacked them properly.
The benefits of not drinking alcohol are immediately apparent. If you combine abstinence with eating healthy foods, you'll look and feel a lot better very quickly. Where I went wrong in my first sobriety stretch was to eat junk food like pizza, chips and ice cream regularly on the basis that if I couldn't drink alcohol, there must be some pleasure I could derive from food to replace my loss.
