My Best Day Ever Wouldn't Have Happened If I Hadn't Stopped Drinking.

Here's what would've happened if I were still drinking.

When I eventually joined the family for a walk in the park, I wouldn't have been able to enjoy the beauty of it—I would, instead, have been trying to get through it until I could find a pub.

After a drink or two, I'd come back to life—just in time to spend the next few hours entertaining the locals because they were, well, there.

But this time, it was different.

This time, my day went like this: The morning of my departure, I was up before the sun.

Upon arriving at the airport, I spent some time checking in with our alcohol-free accountability group.

I checked in with the alcohol-free social media channels, feeling productive and nourished.

I sneaked back into the room just as the girls were stirring.

You cannot compare the life you have with the life you COULD have—or even notice the difference—if you don't give yourself another option.
