Day 30: The Benefits of Sobriety

Welcome to Day 30! And CONGRATULATIONS for completing RESET!

It’s my true hope that you have gleaned lots of helpful tools to add to your toolbox - and that you feel confident in walking away from RESET with a different perspective on the role that alcohol plays in your life. In the video above, I ask you to reflect on three simple questions that will help you move forward:

  • What worked?

  • What didn’t?

  • What did I learn?

I wanted to end the course by shining a big spotlight on the BENEFITS and PERKS of Sobriety. They are illustrated beautifully in this artwork by Positively Present.

The Perks of Sobriety

I also reached out to lots of folks, asking them what their favorite element of sobriety is. I’ve included some responses below. I encourage you to make a list of your own favorite benefits and revisit them when you feel the need. Thank you so much for committing to this RESET program - and best wishes on your journey moving forward.

Finally, I have a special surprise for you, courtesy of Positively Present. Use the code sober (made exclusively for this program!) at checkout to receive 15% off your purchase. Visit Positively Present online to view her offering. xoxo Kim
