Yeah, I picked an awful month to quit drinking. I’m glad that’s over with. Most of the anxiety I feel arose out of that sobriety, I think. Alcohol is a hell of a coping mechanism. I was drinking way too much though. Almost daily. Now, I only allow it on th, fr, sat. It’s good to take breaks.

I’ve started lifting weights a bit and I’m trying to be more aware of my diet. Nothing etched in stone, no hard rules, just questioning “why,” I’m eating. Am I actually hungry? Am I bored? Am I filling a hole? Is it just habit? Lots of self reflection right now.

The spring was insane. I’m glad I had a wingman. I couldn’t have imagined doing that alone. Thx!
