Reverb 10, Day 24: Everything's OK

Over the month of December, I am taking part in Reverb 10, and the daily prompt for yesterday from Kate Inglis was this:
Everything's OK.
What was the best moment that could serve as proof that everything is going to be alright? And how will you incorporate that discovery into the year ahead?
The moment I knew that everything would be alright was when, with a weighty finality that settled into my gut, I knew I would quit drinking, and that, in fact, my last drink had already been had.

That initial revelation was a hard one to come by and put an end to an entire way of living, the only way I had ever been sure of in my adult life, but it gave me hope, which I had all but given up on.

This next year will be the first sober year of my adult life, and for the first time I feel like a force to be reckoned with.

Everything really is okay.
