AMETHYST 💜✨🔮The name comes from the Koine Greek ἀμέθυστος amethystos from ἀ- a-, "not" and μεθύσκω methysko / μεθύω methyo, "intoxicate", a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness.[1]

Mornings used to be not so good. Now they’re hit and miss, but some days I cannot believe my eyes. Sparkling water cheers to a clear mind, a headache free morning and sober travels. Cheers to creating a life that makes you wake up and feel pride. It is hard work, but it is #teetotally worth it.

I can't count how many Sundays I used to force my hungover butt to get to church. .
.
I desperately wanted different but couldn't get it together. I kinda hoped just being there would fix me.

There is power in just showing up. Showing up for your life, for yourself, for those who love you, whether you feel like it or not.
.

Today I'll be singing "Lord I Need You" and I still do. Through His grace, mercy, and forgiveness I have been made new ❤

Yesterday I had the most brilliant time hanging out with my friend @boosuzy who just happens to be one of the most beautiful people I know, inside and out. Her generosity, honesty, kindness and humour have got me through many a pickle, and it was a real treat to have her all to myself this weekend 💛
I couldn't feel more grateful for the A-MAZ-ING time we spent exploring @godsownjunkyard (aka a visual feast of actual neon paradise), followed by an epic (and unexpected) vegan hot dog of dreams, topped with spinach, coriander and lime, pickles, pink sauerkraut, beetroot horseradish, mustard and fresh tomato salsa... Bloody delish! 💛
.
Mixed in amongst the beer, sex, meat and gambling messages were a few that spoke out to me... .
"It's always your favourite sins that do you in"
.
"I ♥ crap"
.
"More is never enough"
.
I talked about "more" a lot in my last post, and seeing those words up there in sparkly lights gave me a weird kind of thrill.
I found that these other two messages made me reflect... I think, on some level, I genuinely did used to enjoy making myself feel like crap. Whether it was through that loss of control, the hangover, or the 'beer-fear' and 'retro-cringes' from the night before, feeling a substance-induced kind of awful perhaps felt better than letting myself get on with facing my actual feelings. .
And, in the end - I realised it was doing me in. .
Even if I wasn't getting drunk, just having any alcohol in my system at all was playing havoc with my mental health. I had panic attacks most days. I didn't show up for work. I was so low I couldn't get out of bed some days. I was constantly terrified that I was fucking up so badly, that I'd let everyone around me down. .
On hangover-free Sunday mornings like these, I feel so so relieved and grateful that I gave myself a break and the opportunity to get better. Ditching the booze makes me feel like the best, the happiest, the most capable, the most powerful version of myself, and it was a real surprise and a comfort to see those messages up in neon lights for all to enjoy 💟✨💟✨💟✨💟

Hard to pick just one, when tools are aplenty, especially in bars! 😆
.
.
The one that sticks out was early in my sobriety, literally the first time I ventured out into the bar on a Sunday with my husband so he could catch the game.
.
.
My husband told the bartender "She quit drinking" (mind you my husband wan't too happy about it at the time) and the bartenders response was "Why be a quitter? BAHAHAHA" Douche.
.
.
Your turn, humor me with the redicousness you've faced in your journey🤓

The past few weeks, I’ve been working on putting together a Self-care/Sobriety Toolkit (bag) that I can carry with me and have handy. These are a few things that I have in my bag to keep my mind busy. 😊
Anyone else have a similar toolkit that you use? •

365 Days #sober I can't even with this side by side. The left one was taken the May before I got sober. It was taken at my mother's wedding, a week where I was drunk more than I was sober and managed to piss off my sister so badly she almost flew home. Real class act. That week confirmed to me that I needed to cut the crap, but it wouldn't be till January that I would draw the line (after "moderating" myself into a blackout). This journey to sobriety has been the hardest I have ever fought for MYSELF and it took everything I had a times, especially in the beginning when the [email protected]#$ it button is right there waiting to hand you another day one ticket.
My one peice of advice for what it's worth is to do #recovery your way. Do what's right for you, there is no ONE "right" way to get #sober. Do you, no apologies.

Last thought- it's freaking worth EVERY hard day to get here. I would do it again in a second to be where I am now. You are missing more than you know and you are SO worth it! <3
