Today, I am one year sober. While my climb to this point has been Sisyphusean, I have stopped blaming myself, and have taken my own life back.
The sight of my country tearing itself apart is hard to watch. Especially sober. But, while it’d be easy to self-medicate to numb the reality, Trump’s not going to get me.
Considering going sober to after-work drinks? Well, you can, but science thinks that you’ll just do your friends more harm.
