Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. I think it is a great thing to celebrate anything you have overcome or achieved. I was so excited when I had 1 day sober, then 1 week, then 1 month was amazing. Each month I got more and more excited. I can't believe it's almost been 1 year. That is such a milestone. I never thought I could do it. Or if I really wanted to in the beginning. My plan was to go, "get better," then drink normally. But in now know I cannot do that. Once I hit this 1 year mark. I want to keep going. One day at a time. Each 24 hours adds up. This can go for anything in life. Once you hit your goal of whatever. Keep going. Do what you want to do, a little bit more each day. Oprah Winfrey said, "The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate." Isn't that the truth? I now realize how much more I have, how much love from those around me. I have so much to celebrate. My sobriety comes first. Because without that, i have nothing. I will go back to the miserable, hopeless me, and celebrate nothing. I am so happy and blessed to be sober one more day, and for that I will celebrate. Once I hit that 1 month goal, I wanted 2 months. Once I hit 1 year, I will then want 2! That's all for today! Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
