Sobriety has given me...
Alcohol free life gives me a clear sight every day, every night (exept when i sleep). The best decision I make every day.
My LIFE is Healthy and Happy without Alcohol. I choose this path to be close to and follow the Nature and strongly believe that’s the only way of human LIFE.
To me alcohol-free means genuine and real relationships with people around me. Read more...
It also gives me self-confidence knowing that whatever I do, it is me and not the influence of any substance which means that I will also be able to repeat it in whatever setting. I think that by removing alcohol from my life, I am removing the “unknown” variable and making myself free.
Living alcohol free matters to me because of a personal and social dimension. I don't want to contribute and support a massive industry that causes deaths and diseases - BigAlcohol. Read more...
Personally I like to be real, extend my comfort zone free from mind altering substances. I like to live life healthily, consciously and in harmony with the world around me.
More than 40 years of an uninhibited sober life are behind me – I am looking forward to the next 40 unforgettable years to come!
To me Alcohol is an enemy which can spoil and ruin any individual/family. Life being away from Alcohol is the best way to lead peaceful and harmonious.
Well some people say Alcohol is fun, cool, rejuvenating and helps relieve tension. To me Alcohol free life means everything, honing up my senses, having control over my actions and cherishing every moment of my life. Read more...
And if am really to relieve my problems and tensions I would travel to places, meet new people, understand vivid cultures of this gorgeous world, be with my family and friends and thank god for such a beautiful life, that i would call getting HIGH with my life 🙂
I take this decision to lead my life ALCOHOL FREE
As a child I was surrounded by seeing alcohol and other drugs used in my house, I promised myself to never drink because seeing how my father can change after few drinks made me realize that I don’t want to become like him. Read more...
My biggest wish was to help my dad to quit drinking and using drugs but I knew that some things just couldn’t be protected from storms. Some things simply needed to be broken off…Once old thing were broken off, amazingly beautiful thing could grow in their place. I would lay down and look at the shooting stars and wish this to come true. My father was not the same when he was drinking, an alcoholic, a real alcoholic, is not the same man at all. Every time he would be someone you never met before. Living in this environment has done a lot of harm to me and even today I need to see life differently from what I have seen and understood. I grew up feeling ashamed, frightened, lost, guilty and lonely; feeling unconfined, unsafe, unlisted to, unprotected, unloved, unlovable; feeling there was no one there, inside or out. But there was literally no one to turn to. My mother was just as broken as I was. I always thought If I would need to give one thing to my dad I would give him the ability to see my childhood through my eyes. Maybe then he would regret all the things he has done. Today I´m Sober not because it’s a new trend, but because when I see a bottle my heart stops for a while out of fear. My father quit drinking 8 years ago, today we can sit down and talk and I see the regret in his eyes and I see that he did sow my childhood trough his own eyes now. I changed a lot too and today I can say that the biggest gift you can give to someone is Love them even after all they done not asking for anything in return. I’m sober because that’s who I was made to be, we are most beautiful when we are ourselves.
Alcohol is not my choice of Life, I am sober always. Its my deep scene of gratitude to be a role model to my society. I am very happy to see this DRINK REVOLUTION in flying colors.
Alcohol free lifestyle means I care for myself, my body! It’s a choice to give utmost importance to my health! I don’t want to hide or run away from the life I have been given! Life is beautiful and let’s live to the fullest! 🙂
When I first told myself to try a life without alcohol, I didn't think of it as something 'revolutionary', more like a cool thing to try out. But as I soon started to realize, it was so much more than that. Read more...With the resistance I faced, I realized that this was something truly revolutionary; and as with any revolution I met people that stood by my side. Now, years later, I can’t stop wondering how I didn’t thought of this earlier, how could this question or decision ever cross my mind? Well, the alcohol norm is probably the short answer to that and the thought of this makes me very sad. The fact though, that it only took someone to point this out to me in order to get my thoughts going is much more inspiring. Now if someone chooses the alcohol free life, year, weekend or party I can be the squire someone was for me; and this gives me a lot of hope for creating a revolutionary movement filled with people living alcohol free, one way or another.
Be sober in Poland at the party? A few years ago, the idea seemed crazy. Taht was the moment when I said stop! As you can imagine it, it was much harder than I thought. Read more...
That was the moment when I really noticed how socially we are “adiccted” to alcohol: birthdays, weddings, Saturday’s events, anniversaries, holidays etc. – refusing to drink a toast was equal to an offense. Today, so much has already changed. People do not brag about how much they can drink, more and more often I meet people who choose not to drink alcohol at all. Looking at these changes and the benefits of abstinence, I feel part of the change for the better. Life without alcohol is a conscious life, free of excuses, hangover, it’s a life with more time, money and energy to live it full and live it well.
Being away from Alcohol and provide support to youth on prevention to be away from alcohol gives me immense satisfaction and pleasure. For me Life without alcohol is Heaven
For me Alcohol is no less than poison, that slowly creates and increses a gap between the body and the soul. I live my life full of happiness even without the so called support of alcohol.
I have been sober for all my life because I was raised knowing that alcohol and drugs are something that I cannot allow into my life. This is how I developed my shield that has always allowed me to say 'no', no matter what the situation or environment I find myself in. Read more...
And most of all, I was taught to feel proud of this choice and empowered by it. This was the only way to make it through all the moments when everyone wanted to me to say “yes” to alcohol but I wanted to say “no”: I had to feel confident in myself and in my values, I couldn’t let the social norm and expectations of others influence me and my choices. This lifestyle has taught a lot of lessons and it has helped me to develop myself in ways that I could never hope for if I was not sober.
Living life close to nature, being sober, open up various doors to stretch youself in your daily life. Be a trend sette , be sober
