My lovely fellow sober warriors, today is day 400! I can’t imagine how I’ve got here. It’s amazing, but also tricky – I still get quite anxious. Was just last night away at a training weekend and everyone was getting quite enthusiastic about wine (and G and Ts – teachers, especially) and I decided to go to bed early – I didn’t feel under any pressure to drink but I find the company of enthusiastic drinkers a bit meh. Then I left early altogether because was just a bit overwhelmed (it was training in quite a demanding role) but happy once I got in my car on the motorway! I was also doing a late night gig in London earlier in the week – so it has been a challenging one but also wonderful! Anyway, it’s a good milestone!!! xxx
