    I’m going strong in my sobriety. I’ve been incorporating my sober tools that got me sober in the first place, which I had disregarded for so long. Turns out they actually work! (still) Doh!
    My guy and I went grocery shopping and I had a craving, so I bought myself a bubbly water (we have so much at home). He didn’t understand why, so I explained to him that to quell my craving I bought myself something refreshing.
    I’m still absolutely heartbroken from losing my kitty, and so is my other kitty which is both comforting and sad, but it’s also helping me be strong. Talking to my guy last night about questioning if I made the right decision helped me. I’m definitely experiencing all the classic stages of grief. I’ve never lost a pet who I solely cared for for so long, so I really didn’t know what to expect. I just miss her so much.
    And with that, I’m off to start my day. Today I will not drink. There are things I have to do, and I will not do more than I can handle but I have a list of things to do if I feel up for it. I’m letting my body, and mostly my heart, guide me right now. I can do, or not do, whatever it wants (excluding alcohol). I’ve eaten a lot of sugar lately. 😉
    Happy sober day, all. xo

    • Losing a pet is so hard. You’re doing great. Hugs to you.

    • Funny how those tools work but we chose to ignore them 😂 well done on choosing water and explaining it to your guy. Sorry you lost a pet, yes it does leave a hole 💕

    • Glad to hear you’re doing ok @Lars. It’ll be tough for a while. Pets are like our children! Stay sober. Good job! Your strength helps us all out!

    • you’re doing so well Lars, big hugs hon xxx
