My first year of sobriety was all about figuring out how to get through each day without putting a substance in my body.
I was sober, but I was bored out of my mind. I was unhappy and I was still evoking chaos in certain aspects of my life. My mind was still swirling with anxious thoughts about the future and regrets about the past.
I’d put the drugs down, and that’s great, but now what?
The second year of my sobriety was about cleaning up what was inside of me. It was about developing emotional sobriety.
