"I hit 1000 days yesterday! I can’t believe it. I had made a decision at the beginning of COVID when everything was shutting down and there was totally panic over the liquor stores closing that I would not drink until COVID was over. That I would experience it Sober thinking it would be two weeks. I had been thru Hurricane Katrina which was a devastating hurricane in New Orleans and I numbed myself through the whole thing and the days following and I didn’t want to do that again. As COVID didn’t show signs of slowing down, after two months I had made a decision, I didn’t want to drink again. I felt tremendously better, I was finally starting to heal as a human and I didn’t want to be often the only one drunk in many situations anymore. After nearly 3 years I feel like I can finally let my light shine again and would love to help others to do the same."
