Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi all I posted my first post earlier as I'm starting my journey tomorrow of being sober.... I wanted to have some positives that I can look at when I will be finding it hard, so just wondering from your experience was positives you have found since sober and physical things or changes to appearance thanks everyone 👌

    amazing effect being sober after 4 1/2 years. I can assure you that your skin will improve and your general outlook on life will be positive. You will sleep poorly initially as the body struggles with alchohol leaving.....long term much better sleep pattern. Best of luck for tomorrow. Robin

    Change in appearance for sure.  Clearer skin and brighter eyes.  Clearer head and more energy.  Wanting to go out in the car again and drive with the music blasting.

    Sleep a big problem but hopefully will conquer that - then I will be like Superwoman lol lol - and all because of much much less alcohol.

    Yes, you will without a doubt experience changes and all for the better.
