I get this email all the time: "After 100 days sober, do you think I could drink again?"
I have one such message in my inbox right now.
And so here's my answer - in audio format. There's something in this audio for you today, too.
Maybe it's the "not drinking doesn't change your brain..." or something else equally as confusing that made sense when i said it ... (audio is 20 minutes long)
Rosalita (day 83): "This is really what I needed to hear ... I feel super grateful to have these days sober and you're right, who knows if and when those circumstances could or would ever be replicated. I think about and look at my journal about all of the other times for many years that I wanted to stop but didn't. Now that I'm in this strange new place. Why would I want to go back to that bad place I was before? Accepting that alcohol lights up a part of my brain that I'd rather see dormant is probably the toughest part. Being able to feel the good is what makes it worth it to me."
