Reverb 10, Day 19: Healing

Over the month of December, I am taking part in Reverb 10, and the daily prompt for today from Leonie Allan is this:
What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011?
Look, Reverb. I'm getting tired of talking about alcoholism and sobriety. I QUIT DRINKING, OKAY. It was, quite literally, a drip-by-drip evolution over 21 years, although, to be honest, it was usually gulp-by-gulp.


How would I like to be healed in 2011? The answer is sobriety. These days, the answer is always sobriety.

Tomorrow, Reverb, how about my cats, or my favourite kind of pasta sauce, or what I'm reading right now?
