A few weeks without alcohol would have helped you become more conscious of any patterns in your drinking as you began to make positive changes in your life.
Just one month of sobriety will certainly yield a number of advantages, such as:
an increase in physical energy, a decrease in physical fatigue, a rise in mental focus and an improvement in concentration
decreased irritation and anxiety as a result of better emotional control
improved resistance to disease (particularly important with COVID-19)
Sober October was an excellent opportunity to examine your relationship with alcohol.
It's understandable that refraining from alcohol for a month would be difficult, and it's quite acceptable to struggle more than expected. It is recommended that you seek the advice of a treatment specialist or therapist at the month's end to handle any outstanding difficulties or concerns.
