Sobriety Super Powers

A guide to Dry January (and beyond)

Sometimes I feel like sobriety is a secret super power that only a select few understand.

I wish it wasn’t such a sensitive subject.

Just the word ‘sobriety’ conjures ideas that may not be accurate.

Sober = alcoholic past

Sober = must have been in a program

Sober = can’t be around alcohol

Sober= not any fun anymore

Sober = high horse riding snob

But here’s the deal. Sobriety is a choice. It is a choice to not consume a certain drug or alcohol. That’s it.

There’s no way to know (without asking) why individuals make this choice.

For me, my family drank heavily and it resulted in dysfunction and death.

So in my forties, I chose to abstain from alcohol to preserve my mental and physical health.

I have zero issues being around alcohol. I don’t crave it. And whether or not I was ever fun is debatable😉

Will I ever drink alcohol in the future? Maybe. I’m not sure.

For now, I'd to share why I think sobriety is a super power.
