being sober feels like …

being sober feels like:

J: “Being sober feels like when it is snowing outside and you have nowhere to be so you stay inside with the warmth of the fire and the twinkle of the Christmas tree and the smell of fresh baked cookies and the sound of your children playing downstairs.
So good. Just so good.”

apprentice annie (day 1658): “Being sober (still) feels like a fucking miracle.

tina jeanne (day 47): “I would have to say the feeling is of utter peace. Whatever the opposite of anxiety is — that is how I feel.”

Jillie (day 16): “Being sober feels like perfect bangs. “

ckelly (day 14): “Being sober feels like I’m starting to know myself again, or maybe for the first time. It’s scary but also exciting to see what unfolds.”


i’ve started to add some quotes to the Exit (the Booze Elevator, Because It Only Goes Down) Sober Art page … Your vote – Good idea? Boring? You can also comment on the choice of colours (ash grey-blue or light turquoise, as shown on the page).

this is a close-up of #241
