I hope I find one soon before it’s really cold than it already is
So this is super late but figured since I browse on here often to stay the course I would like to formally introduce myself if that’s alright with you all !?
So I will start by saying Hii my name is laquitta and I’m in recovery from alcoholism!
I’ll be 28 this month on the 18th
Like many humans I have my flaws,ups and downs,
before realizing I was an alcoholic or addict or just someone with a problem with drinking I started kinda young 15 or 16 peer pressure at first and then it spiraled!
Most anything that happened I would blame myself for drinking, this wouldn’t of happened if I didn’t drink or it’s my fault because I drank and it wasn’t until I decided I’m gonna try therapy that I started unpacking my trauma responses or whatever you may have it … that I discovered wow this makes sense and still everyday I try small ways to improve or give myself routine while I’m not working to incorporate as much as humanly possible and give myself deserved rest
Anyways that was just a lil introduction
Oh and I love oldies, I write my own personal poetrys and love writing poems for others thank you for taking the time to read if you did or do
Really nice to meet you Laquitta! And to get yo know you a bit better. I love oldies too From the 60s and onward. Love Motown and classic rock.
Seriously the oldies have always felt better in my spirit like timeless oldies are so beautiful
I appreciate you taking out your time to get to know me just a bit better!
Welcome to the community, Laquita. Nice to know you’re a music nut, too, like a lot of us here.
Old School R&B is awesome: Tamla/Motown, Stax, Atlantic, etc.
definitely a music nut there is nothing like a good tune and good food and that from someone that started dancing where other people were because elvis was on and I danced while enjoying spaghetti the size of my fist
I wouldn’t of done that a year ago. I sober up and I’m a dancing fool
I am the opposite! Jealous!!! Still trying to get my dance back on now that I am sober. I was all about a dance party before.
Hiii friend maybe you’ll find your groove when you least expect it honestly after a sweet older couple cheered me on I kept on going 🏿🏿🏿🏿
So for years I thought I was lazy when I slept in and a nice relative drilling that thought and before now I didn’t understand why I felt so tired or exhausted and pushing myself so often to not feel that way and yesterday I found out I have a chronic disorder mild sleep apnea and I have so many feelings about it like wow there is an answer for what I’ve been dealing with for yrs
Very greatful to be sober and have answers
Celebrating my 28th birthday Saturday with a Diet Coke and dinner and I’m so grateful for sobriety

So today I got the nerve up to journal and why I started around the holidays I have not a clue but I figured if I wrote it here it would keep me accountable because I’m kinda terrible at routine so to stay on track I had to come here lol anyways Journaling felt good and
Aside from that this is my second first full year spending the holidays sober and I’m very thankful for that and hopefully that made sense
Happy holidays to all us doing our best and navigating this thing called life sober
