Yesterday I hit 14 months sober and I started My Recovery So Far about this time last year. Over the last twelve months this blog has been one of the biggest parts of my life. I started writing for cathartic reasons when I hit rock bottom and putting everything down here has kept me on track and helped me turn my life around. I am now living as the person I was always meant to be, I’m dealing with my anxiety and depression as I should be, my outlook on alcohol is completely different, my thought process has changed and I’m making better decisions all the time. I’m happy with who I am and I’m really looking forward to a more anonymous fresh start. A new year is just around the corner and I want to go into it as Claire and not Claire who’s in recovery. A lot of thought has gone into this decision and I want to move on and not have the pressure of writing another post or putting my problems out on social media because I know they will help someone. I just feel I’ve done my bit and I want to move on. I’ve met some wonderful people through this site and I will continue to read blogs, community pages, tweets and any other updates but as far as my blog is concerned, I’ve said everything I need to and I want to leave it here.
Thank you all for your wonderful support and your lovely comments over the last twelve months. I wish you all the best for 2019 with lots of love, health and happiness.
