Good Morning Fellow Authors of New and Non-Drinking Chapters…This is day 14 for me. Not gonna lie; had plenty of thoughts of…”let me just stop for one” BUT I didn’t cave. I dipped into another store, found a conversation, looked at pets on the gram, cooked or…came here to read or connect.
I just wanted to thank you folks for giving me a place to come too…for being brave enough to share both your victories and your failures. It’s not easy to be open about shortcomings, it’s not easy to say hey I’m not like every other social drinker…My stop button is broken, and it’s hard to ask for help, BUT each and every one of you including myself have, and continue to do so…I’m proud of us for that.
Be proud of you…we’re far from perfect, but damn it were fighters…are we scared? Yes, terrified sometimes, but we RISE…never forget your worth fighting for.
You. ARE. WORTH. IT!
Don’t forget to love yourself today. Stop fighting against yourself. Stay healthy, and be blessed.
Hahaha- I always say “my stop button is broken” funny now, not so much in the moment! Congrats on 14! And to your point-
It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.
Please no one take this literally-dog fighting is horrible. lol
I love that saying,”my stop button is broken” this is one that I will be stealing…lol. I usually say to people when I’m asked why aren’t you drinking? I say I can’t just have one so I’m having non, I broke normal drinking. But your saying sounds loads better great work on them days lady! I’m so glad to be on this journey with you
