Thanks so much for sharing this with us Jo. I got alot from it. I resonate so much of what you said. As a sufferer of anxiety and depression most days are like this and more so now I’m recently off the drink. I find myself being very ill tempered and grouchy with those around me. I can be unreasonable and not very pleasant to be around to be honest. I’m exhausted most of the time and reeling emotionally from a long term relationship breakdown. My head is a complete mess. But having said all of this I agree that a bad day sober is better than a bad day drinking, doing pretty reckless things with no abandon that I wouldn’t do sober, telling people exactly what I think of them, things that I’ve been bottling up for ages, facing people I’d be far better staying away from, the list goes on. I’m in alot of distress physically and mentally sober at this early stage (it’s horribly familiar as I’ve had many sober attempts) but I don’t miss the chaos and the destruction I would cause, mostly to myself from having a drunken day and waking up with little no recollection of it.
Life certainly is no picnic sober. We’re having to live life with all of it’s ups and downs and deal with things that we don’t like or don’t want to face and with no numbing agent to block any of it out. It takes alot more courage to take this path. Brave sober Warriors we each are X
