Honestly, there was no one huge moment or event. I just finally got sick of lying to myself *every single day* that I was going to cut back on my drinking. I spent so much time lying to myself and managing my drinking that there was no room for much of anything else — creativity, fun, etc. It finally hit me that one way to stop worrying so much about my drinking would be to…actually quit drinking. :-) It was the scariest moment of my life, but the scariest moment was also the moment things started getting better.
Oh! And also, I started by committing to just 100 days, via the Tired of Thinking About Drinking website. Maybe check it out? Tons of support and practical advice to be found there.
