Because you probably have a whole list.

1. When
it comes to personal decisions, going sober
just might be one of the most life-changing
ones.

It takes a lot of willpower to give up
something that (probably) every one of your
friends does on a semi-regular basis, that
supposedly makes whatever you’re doing ~more
fun~, and that you’re exposed to on a pretty
constant basis.

2. But
while everyone has their own reasons for going
sober, chances are it’s had a pretty
significant (and positive) impact on your life.

instance, maybe getting sober has helped you
rebuild relationships with people in your
family.

5. Or
perhaps you realized your drinking was a way of
self-medicating, and becoming sober helped you
find your way.

Maybe it motivated you to find a doctor or
therapist to talk to, and they gave you the
actual professional help you needed. Or maybe
you were just drinking to forget about a
problem that seemed too daunting to take on,
and now that you’re sober, you’ve not only
climbed that hill but gone sky high.

6. Hey,
maybe it helped you get fit and healthy in
other ways.

Swapping happy hour for the gym probably made
any get-healthy goals a lot easier to attain.

you’re suddenly productive AF at work now that
you’re never going in hungover.

9. So let
us know how sobriety has improved your life.

You can write your story in the comments, and
if you want to send pictures too, you can do
that via the dropbox below. Feel free to
include details like how long you’ve been sober
or why you decided to make this change.

By the way, we’re aware that getting sober can
be an incredibly difficult and painful process,
as well. We’re in no way implying that this is
always easy or rewarding all the time. That
said, we hope you’ll share what impact it’s had
on your life so far, so that your story may
help someone else who’s currently getting sober
or considering it.
