Today I stumbled onto the /r/stopdrinking subreddit and after a couple hours of lurking around like a creeper, I decided that I’m going to take a plunge and stop drinking. I don’t want to go into my entire personal/family history with alcoholism but I am very likely an alcoholic. Those who know me closely have almost definitely been a part of an event that is leading up to this decision. While I love to laugh and joke about my drinking habits on this blog, I know it’s actually a problem for me, and one I need to tackle before it tackles me. Today I’m going to begin the process of becoming a sober person. Today was my first day officially sober 🙂
Powerlifting has definitely helped me make this decision as it is one of my main motivators in life and I know my lifts will be benefited by my going sober. I look forward to seeing that happen in addition to many other benefits. I will probably talk about this decision from time to time on this blog, so get ready for the emo-bullshit. Anyway, hopefully this won’t be too terribly difficult. I appreciate any support/advice/feedback you’ve got. Thanks.
