You Will Never Regret Your Sober Time

It’s impossible to regret sober time.

A year, six months, a week. Nobody thinks back and says geez I wish I spent that time drinking or getting high.

After a relapse you realise how valuable that time is. You wish it back so bad.

I don’t think I’ve ever valued my sober time as much as post relapse.
