Hi! I just hit the reset button after a good month and a half of sobriety. I hate the feeling of being back on day 1 but I’m damn determined to stick with staying sober.
This time, I’m going to participate in these forums and offer encouragement and support and hope that this will add some accountability for me as well.
So I’m an alcoholic. I’ve drank heavily since I was 21. Wine is my weakness and I’m jealous of people who can carelessly sip a glass and discuss …something profound. When I drink, I gulp the wine and fill the glass up again only to chug it all gone. Sometimes I drank straight out of the bottle. Classy, I know.
I’m tired of it ruining my life, dominating my thoughts, assisting me in going into a tail-spin of negative feelings like guilt and shame. I’m tired of it robbing me of quality time with my kids, and my husband. I’m tired of how tired it makes me.
Other than all of that, I’m a 32 year old mom of two little guys, a wife, a pretty decent friend and sister. I live in the PNW and have an awesome job that I love. I have 2 dogs and a cat and zero hobbies (probably because drinking WAS my hobby).
Looking forward to getting to know you all a little better and sharing in your victories together!
