I really connected to this topic of writing about sobriety. A key component to my new sobriety required in the online recovery program I found has been the writing assignments that help you examine your drinking, thoughts (cognitive distortions) and behaviors. We also have to read the writings aloud to the counselor and the group you are in. Sort of like publishing the writing. Putting it out there. Reading blogs like this, the plethora of Quit Lit available, and listening to podcasts has been a lifeline for me through these first 119 days. So, thank you for putting yourself out there. It has helped me.
