65 Days Sober

‘One day at a time’ has gotten me to day 65.

Not going to say it’s been easy, because it hasn’t.

More often than not, I wanted to drink.

Not too frequently anymore.

I finished my first workbook – The Mindfulness Workbook for Addiction – and now I’m on to my next – The Addiction Recovery Skills Workbook.

These book are proving so helpful, the exercises in them really help.

I’m so glad I can be sober. Not only for myself, but for my children, my husband, my family as a whole.

It’s only taken 12 years since I started drinking, it figure out that I don’t need to.

I used to wake up in shame, not remembering what I did the night before and/or not remembering exactly what I said, or regretting the things I did do or say.

I don’t miss that.

We used to spend a lot on alcohol, so it’s been saving us money by not drinking.

(And a quick credit here to my husband because I know in my heart of hearts, if he didn’t quit drinking with me, there is no way I wouldn’t stayed sober this long, or at all.)

I used to do things when I was drunk that I would never do sober (obviously).

I’m not proud of any of that.

I wish I could rewind and take back all that time that I wasted being drunk.

But I can’t, so I will move forward 100% sober.

I just wanted to share, because I just remember that I crossed the two month line now.

One day at a time.

One month at a time.

One year at a time.

I will succeed.
