Giving up your vice and guilty pleasure isn’t something that comes easy, but can lead to a happier and healthier life! You may not see changing in your body or behavior quickly, but documenting your progress provided motivation and allows you to reflect on your progress.
One man did just that, documenting in pictures, his three years of sobriety. Over last three years, Kenny D. has taken snaps of how he looked when he quit alcohol at key stages in his journey of sobriety. The changes within the first month are already huge and he is almost unrecognizable in the final photos.
“I took a picture of myself the day I got my first sobriety coin, 24 hours sober. I felt so ill and I looked so bad, I wanted to remember it so I wouldn’t forget. The day I got my 30-day coin, I thought my look had changed drastically so I took another selfie,” Kenny told Bored Panda, talking about the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) sobriety coins given to alcoholics who stay sober for a certain amount of time.
