who are you going to turn into?

So I have a hard question for you today, that you’re going to think about all day. Are you ready? What do you want to be when you grow up? What kind of person do you want to be when you’re a sober person? Who are you going to turn into? Where is this going to take you?

Like, who are you going to be as a sober person? What’s it going to feel like? And what’s on that long list of things that you wish you could do if only you had more time? (That you’re now going to do!)

What are the things you can only do because you’re sober? Shall we make a list? Feel proud of yourself. Sleep through the night. Spend less money. Consume fewer dumb calories. Be more patient.

Other things you can do when you’re sober? Oh, I don’t know, any other hobby or interest you might have, learn Italian, carve the headboard, bake the cake, raise the kids, blow the glass beads, paint the picture. What do you have on your list that you can only do if you’re sober?

I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • There’s tonnes of things I’d like to do now I’m sober! But have to be patient as my tendency is to want to do it all , and now!
    I certainly want to travel more and experience different cultures…I’d also love to learn a new language ( because I’ve always told myself I’m crap at languages and I sort of want to prove myself wrong)
    Main thing is I want to be the best wife and mum and friend that I can possibly be. Just be more present…and to learn to accept who I am…I think that is possibly the greatest challenge for me at least 🙂
