The first few weeks of not drinking are such a honeymoon period for me. I feel wonderful, energized, and elated!! It’s totally opposite to the way I feel when I’m drinking. I wonder if there such is thing as alcohol-induced bi-polar disorder …
Unfortunately, after a couple of months, the honeymoon seems to wear off and “life” sets in. How does one find the key to keep the honeymoon going? I catch glimpses of the answer and I believe it’s staying in love with Life. For me it’s so easy to take Life for granted and waste away the days. Then comes deep regret and remorse.
Finding purpose in the mundane, ordinary things and living in the moment seem to help me a lot.
Thanks for listening.
Be well everyone!
