I love being sober

And all of a sudden I remembered I am sober. That’s what happened a few minutes ago when I came on here to my reader and saw the precious sober bloggers that fill my feed. The ones that have reached out to me the last 41 days and I to them. It’s really a magical feeling to struggle with something for so long and then realize that just for today, I didn’t struggle with it at all.

This week can be summed in one word: Sweet. I really had the sweetest week. I realized after my cravings post that I indeed was craving something no alcohol or drug has ever been able to touch and that is God.

So I prayed to Him more than I ever have. As much as I could I committed every act and thought to Him, even, no especially, the smallest details. And all I can say is I had the sweetest time washing dishes, doing the laundry, and other mundane tasks that a housewife normally does. I made every effort to walk, live, and breathe in His grace and something happened to my heart in those occasions that is so hard to put in mere words. I have tears in my eyes just thinking about it.

I am so thankful today. I can’t believe that I am still sober and that I have so much peace. My marriage is 100 times better and my relationship with my teenage son is even really good. This is really lovely. I love being sober! 🙂

  1. OHHHH… I love this. I almost cried (mom’s in the room so I had to hold it in). This is so awesome and I am so happy for you! I might just be rambling but I think when you think about missing IT you miss out on exactly what you’ve gotten to now. You know? And yes… God. And I think looking at sobriety as something precious, that you are grateful for, as opposed to something that is “not fun and not easy” makes all the difference! It’s a gift not a penalty, ya know?? Hope that makes sense.

  2. Yes, moving closer to God is always a wonderful experience. Funny how we move away from him and not the other way around. Yet he is always waiting for us to come back.

  3. Awesome. Allowing ourselves to let Him be enough- not only enough but all we ever or will ever need, really. And trusting Him.
    “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
    Philippians 4: 6-7 ❤ and big hugs.

  4. Simply beautiful post. I am so happy you are happy! It comes across the airwaves, somehow. If that’s what they are (?)

    My relationship with my son and husband are also SO much better. And life really is sweet, isn’t it? Who knew? Why did I waste so much time without this sweetness?

    Thanks for sharing. ; )

  5. Sounds like you are making great progress. Rejoice, rejoice and enjoy your victory. Continue to pray and seek God and do not be lulled into tranquility by the sweetness of sobriety. Yes, rejoice and absolutely enjoy this moment of spiritual healing and growth; but, remember that the road ahead is long and winding. Always be working on your recovery. Even in your rejoicing, be working on your recovery. Remember, if you are not working on your recovery, you are working on your relapse.

  6. What a lovely post! Drawing closer to God is always sweet with blessings. Keep it up and be strong. I made it almost three months last time and thought I had it licked. Then it all fell apart. I’m not doing that again. Now I’m on day 13… again. So happy for you!
