I get it

I remember about two months into being sober and hearing someone say how it’s “fucking hard” I simply didn’t get it. All you have to do is not drink… Well tonight almost 5 months into this new way of living I finally get it! 

This weekend is my partners cousins wedding, and the wedding is in Napa none the less. So not only is it a drinking event but it is a long weekend in the wine country. I’m not going to elaborate cause I think to anyone working on sobriety you can picture the scenario. Needless to say this shit is hard! So I’ve ran away to my room and am taking a bath. Day one down, only 2 more to go! Wish me luck.

Recovery

100 days!

Today I celebrate 100 days sober! I’m so greatful to be able to say that. 

It’s so great to wake up without a hangover and not having to worry about still smelling like booze from the night before. However the thing that I appreciate the most is how I deal with situations now. In just the past few weeks I’ve seen a tremendous change in the way I handle stressful situations. I’m able to think clearly and not react based off of emotion. The amount of conflict I have avoided is worth more than I can explain. 

So to all my sober people or anyone playing with the idea, it’s worth it!
