Have had increasing problems managing alcohol consumption since 2010. In response to a friend doing a 60 day challenge to abstain, I have decided to start out doing a 30 day one. I have not gone more than 22 days in 7 years and that was only one time in fall 2016. Otherwise I have not gone more than 5 days without.
Today, 11/1/17 is day 8.EDIT: New day 1: 11/28/2018
oxoxox Oh no…hugs if you want one. I hate disappearing posts after pouring it all out. It never comes out as well the second time and of course I keep forgetting to copy/paste it into a Word document just in case to be safe. Every.time. Lol. oxoxox
NOOOO! I was just thinking last night that this had not been mentioned for ages, @Mrs-d ? Did you tag anyone? hey will have it in email or notifications and can repost. Back to remembering to tag, save as go if long – or even if short and precious, as every post is XXX
Its all good guys! I was in a reflective mood and thinking back over the past 2 years of drama and how far I’ve come through it all. And how @mari135 says “we are not at fault!” And it is so true because another quote I heard once has really stuck with me. It says” Nobody gets up in the morning and says ‘how can I best screw up my life today.” No. we do the best we can, even if we at times consciously sabatoge ourselves at times. But being sober, what that does is give us the opportunity to gain WISDOM… which helps us GROW. Rather than stay stuck in the same “insanity” (doing the same thing but expecting different results) loop we stay in when drinking.
