Milestone Moments

Last week I hit 2 HUGE milestones in my life!

I hit 19 months sober which is so big for me! For as long as I can remember I’ve always coped with stress from work,anxiety and other life issues, through drinking. I’d come home, pour a glass of rum/vodka on the rocks and “relax”(or so I thought).

Little did I know, I was actually fueling the fire and making it harder on myself. I thought this behavior was normal and that it was ok.

March 3rd 2019 my wife came to me and made me choose. I was never told to choose before and it rocked my world!

I, of course choose sober life but it was rough. I was kicking and screaming every step of the way.

But then a week past, then a month, then 6 months and then a year! Incisions believe I actually stayed sober for a whole year!

It wasn’t easy but I did it and every month that goes by makes it a little easier and the rewards are becoming bigger!

So what was my 2nd milestone?!?!?!

Last week I received the biggest promotion of my life/career!

As of 12 October 2020, I will step into the lab as a lab manager!!

I contacted my very first manager in optical and thanked her for taking the chance on me 5 years ago! It felt great to tell her!

I’m always one to take on a challenge head first and go In swinging!

Cheers to 19 months sober!
