"When I was drinking it constantly felt like I was drowning and for the first time in the last 5 or so years, I can breathe again."
"My confidence has grown, I’m happier, I am a better friend, daughter, sister, and partner...I am my true self all the time and that is super empowering!"
"Losing was part of this journey but I gained so much more in the process. While hurt by some responses to my decision I realized this is MY journey."
"My overall appearance has improved. The most noticeable thing, to me, is just how I feel overall and how much more rested I am. We don’t get true REM sleep when we’re drinking."
"I'm learning to stop, breathe, and be present. I devote more time to self-care. I take time out to pamper and nourish myself without guilt."
"EVERYTHING GOT BETTER. I'm making more money, I have better relationships with loved ones and with myself. My mental and physical health improved. I could go on."
