7 days alcohol free! 😀

A week ago I came here absolutely ashamed of myself and sad for my situation.
In less than an hour I got more support from you guys than I ever expected.
Even if it’s just one week , I feel very proud of my decision and extremely motivated.
I am a traveling entrepreneur so I don’t have the pressure of going to an office or have any kind of schedule , wich is awesome in a way but it’s very bad when your own issues get in the way. I went on a trip to the Patagonia , specifically to Torres del Paine … the 8th wonder of the world! , to film a travel guide of the hiking trail … I came back over a month ago and haven’t done anything with it , prior to that I went to the amazing Buenos Aires for the 9th time in my life , same thing , and so on and on… , I feel I have been extremely ungrateful of life , I mean what was I thinking??? Anybody would love to be in my position instead I chose for years and years to dedicate my life to drink and party and got nothing from it.
That is about to change. Am determined to start working again , start creating things again , and now with alcohol , hungovers and guilt out of my life , I know I can do this!!
Thank you guys for making this community such a life saver , for being positive and so supportive of everyone. You are awesome!.

What a great topic, gratitude!! I was thinking the exact same thing yesterday. I have an amazing husband (who has put up with me and my drinking…so far) and I own my own business. Like you, my business is also a creative venture. I realized just how good I have it and how close I came (and still will if I slip) to losing it all over drinking. You spoke the words that were floating in my mind and heart. So many times I have come out to this forum and heard you all telling my story. And then, I heard the voice of my higher power speaking through you as well!! I am grateful to all of you and to you @Otka for sharing and being there day in and day out. Let us know how your videos come out, hiking in Patagonia sounds amazing!! Stay strong!
