needs Unlikely tag.. not because of the person involved, but because this means that someone (ANYONE) was sober during my quarantine.
 
2020-06-24 1:00:38 PM  
So she's boring, now?
 
2020-06-24 1:07:21 PM  
Meh, good for her if it's what makes her happy.
 
2020-06-24 1:08:18 PM  
now she needs to quit smoking before her voice is completely ruined.  her speaking voice is already getting gravelly.
 
2020-06-24 1:08:30 PM  
If true, good for her. Quitting alcohol has been a life changer for me. Everything is better.

Could be worse.  Could be a sober Limey.

Good for her. Her voice is lovely. I read this article and was honestly shocked that she's only 27. She's beautiful but she does look older than she is and I think it's because substance abuse exhausts and prematurely ages the body. I'm glad she's trying to improve her life.

I assume it was a play on her comment in the article where she was complaining about the stigma of being sober and people assuming that if you are then you are no fun.

Grats, dude.  27 months this weekend.

After 12 months, I realized I was recovering things I never noticed I lost.

As a former opera singer that's been smoking for 34 years ... I'm still dead on accurate with the notes but yea, I can't hit the highs I once could nor hold any of them nearly as long.

And is she a smoker smoker, or a social smoker? There's a lot of folks who only smoke when they party.

First and foremost: be mindful of your actions. Think about every action you take and what it does to your life. If you have family or people close to you, see how it affects their lives. Hell, keep a journal or worksheet of your actions, reasons for the action, and outcomes from the action.

Secondly: Look at your community. Who are you spending time with? Are they also drinking or doing drugs (I don't know if drugs are your thing)? Maybe it's time to excise them from your life.

Third: If you decide to give it up, keep track of your progress. I'm keeping counters of every day that I've been sober. For me, every day was a victory. Also, celebrate your success. Be proud of yourself for making it that week, month and so on. Alcohol addiction is no joke.

Fourth: Simplify your life. If your home is cluttered, get rid of things you don't need. Do the Marie Kondo thing. Turn off the news if you haven't already. Hell, turn off the TV and internet and spend some time meditating.

In my depths, when I was sober enough to drive, or on my way home from the office, I would mindlessly go to the store and grab a couple six packs, and/or go to the liquor store and get some vodka and scotch (I live in New Hampshire, and hard liquor stores are run by the state). I would burn through it in a weekend, then take the following Monday off work to recover. My relationships with co workers, friends and family were heavily affected. It was like auto pilot. Financially... with the six packs, bottles of scotch, tequila, vodka and absinthe totaled up was easily costing me between $400 and $500 a month. Not shiatting you at all there.

I also saw that my overall health was on the decline. I was constantly sick. I got up to almost 270 lbs, and it was a nightmare just to walk up the half-flight of stairs from my apt. door to the main building entrance. Everything hurt. Cluster and migraine headaches. Waking up tired and hung over. Losing entire weeks of time because I was drinking it all away. I was pre-diabetic and hypertensive. My diet sucked as I was constantly ordering takeout, pizza delivery, and buying nothing but junk food at the store.

Thankfully there were no legal reasons to force my sobriety, and I am surprised at that. Weed and other drugs were never my thing, so those I didn't have to worry about. Though technically caffeine is a drug...

What really helped me, and this is the honest to Goddess truth, is that I woke up one morning and looked at myself in the mirror. I was hung over and massively dehydrated. I hadn't shaved or showered in 4 days because of my stupor. I looked 20 years older than I was, and I felt like I was 40 years older than I was. After praying to the porcelain god for the third time that morning, I said to myself "I am so farking sick of feeling like this". At that moment, I poured out all of the booze in the apt. and threw out the bottles. That was farkin' liberating. I broke off ties with people who were toxic. I stopped reading about booze, I started blocking ads about alcohol. When I go to the store, I walk past the booze aisles and say to myself "No, you will not ruin your progress".

The big test for me is going to be around the holiday season. A lot of my friends back in the Mitten are celebratory drinkers. I won't stop them or lecture them, but hopefully they see how far I've come, and respect my decision to not drink anymore.

At this time, I'm no longer hypertensive or pre-diabetic. My thyroid is working the way it should. My liver doesn't want to explode. I'm down to 210 lbs and looking a lot leaner. I'm up to 120oz of water a day, so I'm not dehydrated all the time. I haven't had a cluster headache or migraine in months. I can run up multiple flights of stairs and feel no pain at all. I'm exercising 7 days a week, two 75 minute sessions each. I feel farkin' strong as an ox. My relationships have improved, and I recently earned a promotion. I'm able to comfortably afford a luxury SUV and an expensive apartment, and looking to purchase a house in the next couple of years.

When I say everything is better, I mean everything. I hope that I'm not "humblebragging" or coming off like an asshole. I am just proud of what I've accomplished and am optimistic about my future.

if i can't have (long island iced) tea, i'm gonna have sympathy, so pony up- fake it if you have too, i'll take it.  :>
hooray for all of us, this shiat is hard to do sometimes.  and yay for her too- i honestly didn't think she'd make it.  who the hell is still pimping their kids to the entertainment industry?  given the smoking heaps of unhappy endings, when do we go ahead and call it endangerment?  so yeah, good for her.

Six months sober from smoking the marijuanas? Man, the Disney princess skated perilously close to the edge of the Abyss!  /s

James Brown smoked f*cking Angel Dust and led cops on a tri-state car chase, and that was probably just a regular Tuesday for the guy.

When Cyrus is shooting China White between her toes and taking a massive sh*t on stage, maybe then we'll give a crap about her redemption story. So f*cking candy-ass....mumble...mumble....

Aesthetics are subjective; I think she's got very pretty eyes, is attractively slender and can really sing when she gives the effort. Per the article, she's had some vocal cord surgery and that could explain why she sounds like a 4 pack a day smoker sometimes.

I'm hoping the intentionally shiatty tattoo trend goes the way of tribal style and barbed wire tattoos from the 1990s.
