Joy vs Contentment?

Hi Brooke, I stopped drinking completely over two years ago. Overall, it is very easy for me now, I don’t miss it, don’t struggle, all good! One thing I am wondering about though…I feel very content and my emotions are very even now. No drama, no dread, terrible hungover days, regret, self loathing etc BUT also less spikes of joy. Overall, I am very happy but miss spikes of joy throughout my days. I am curious if this is related to not drinking or whether it may have more to do with my age and life stage — 47. I’m simply curious! Any thoughts? xoxo
