Hey guys! Just another little random drop in to say hey. 78 days here!
I just wanted to say that I know most of my posts are chipper and encouraging, but I do struggle just as much as anyone else. I’m figuring out that I tend to want to post something the day after I’ve had a previous night of temptation.
Last night was one of those nights. That little annoying voice was saying, “just one glass of wine!” I debated for about 4 minutes before snapping out of it and remembering all my progress.
Sometimes I feel ashamed after I come to my senses and wonder why I still romanticize drinking. But I have to constantly remind myself that I am human, and that desire may never go away. Hopefully with time it will become easier, but I have to be okay with the fact that the “just one!” voice will forever be in my ear trying to tempt me.
It isn’t easy. There’s a reason we take it one day at a time; because every day we are faced with new obstacles and temptations and new opportunities that could potentially trigger our addiction.
There really is no feeling, however, like waking up and thanking yourself for not giving in.
I could’ve been back on day 1 today. But I’m at 78 and only going up!
Stay strong, everyone!
