Day 184 - woke up to a bunch of FB posts about my friend’s wedding that I missed, including people reporting missing shoes. I felt a heavy heart for not being there, but it was clear the drinking level was HEAVY. So I refocused my mind on gratitude and knowledge that it was not the place for me to be. I’m also trying to be mindful and kind to myself because I sometimes slump after milestones, so going to send a lot of positive energy inward this week.
@MissJ - 11 months and open and honest conversations - just WOW. You are a rockstar.
@ChicagoT - Thank you for sharing the lesson with NA beer. It is not something that I have ever been drawn to, and I also try to stay away from drinks that remind me of alcohol. I’m not going to be drinking anything with tonic or any mocktails anytime soon. It is a good reminder of how our alcoholic brains work and the danger and fallacy of “just one”.
@Buts - those events must have been scary! Look out for yourself and your mental health in the follow-up. And thank you for the reminder that every day is a gift.
Happy sober Sunday, all!
