Well done BT, ( and BT's psychiatrist !),
yes, being sober, while uncomfortable at first, is a huge advantage. You can never truly cope with anything if you can only see it through a fog of booze. And it's never a useful hiding place, because whatever troubles you is always lurking there in that fog. But when clear headed one can both see that some of the monsters, nasty though they are, are never as overwhelming as the seem in the foggy dim darkness, and one can plan rationally and effectively to deal with them. Yes, not it IS your turn, and at last you're making good use of this chance.
