4 years alcohol free

So it’s been 20 months since I’ve written an actual blog post here but fear not all is well with me and my offspring 🙂 This post will be a quick one but don’t worry as if you want to have more regular access to my stream of consciousness, including pictures I take then follow my active Instagram account via nomadic_dad as that’s my current medium of choice.

Given it’s now been over 4 years since I’ve had alcohol I wanted to mark this with a list of what’s changed for me in that time directly relating to this decision but maybe you might identify with some of these too:

  • 4 years of not turning to alcohol
  • 4 years of feeling all the feelings
  • 4 years of no hangovers
  • 4 years of remembering the day & night before
  • 4 years of getting up earlier & maximising the days not writing them off
  • 4 years of being me fully including all the messy bits
  • 4 years of finding what actually brings me joy
  • 4 years of trying to be a better me
  • 4 years of really looking out for me
  • 4 years of working harder on my physical and mental health
  • 4 years of writing new chapters of my life story consciously
  • 4 years of being fully present for those closest to me
