It is Day 6, and its been a long day of middle school hunting. Two parent orientations and a LONG middle school open house in the evening. And an application and financial aid request due tomorrow. And none seem quite right for my kid. I am craving a drink like nobody’s business, but I don’tContinue reading “Day 6”
Made it to Day 5. Yesterday was a difficult day, full of stress and anxiety. I found out that our daughter’s current school wants her to go to a different school for middle school which means a lot of stress to find a new school. It is a long story, but the whole situation isContinue reading “Day Five”
It’s raining here today, and I’m itchy and uncomfortable. My partner has been grouchy, and my daughter was whining about brushing her hair before leaving to (be late to) school. I have to rush to get some important things done now that I put off longer than i should have. Grrrr! Yes, my mood isContinue reading “Day Four”
Made it to Day Three, and I’m really grateful to be here. I am SO grateful that I had a good night’s sleep. That I went for a lovely walk in the woods and did a little yoga yesterday. That I’m going to have a productive day today. And for coffee!! xoxo Leafy
I still don’t have a lot to say about it, except that, yay, made it to Day Two. This is the easy part for me. Today, I’m looking for more tools to keep me out of the danger zone when things start to seem too easy.
I have a problem with alcohol. I can’t deny it anymore. Drinking isn’t working for me, and I’m done.
Quick post again to say that I’m still not drinking, and I’m not going to drink today. Last night, I was incredibly anxious again, but I managed to get through it. I’m waiting now to see if some of this anxiety is actually withdrawal. Hanging in there. Love and support to all of you! xoxo
Well, I’ve made it to Day 3 (again), and I’m really glad. It is a weight off my mind that I am no longer drinking. Damn. As soon as I said that, I started thinking about how great a glass (you know, a bottle-sized glass) of wine sounds. But no matter, I’m not going toContinue reading “Day 3: Motivation?”
Short post -I’m not going to drink today. It really helps to post here. I’m going to keep going. xoxo
The last time I was here, I was very arrogantly declaring that there was no way I was going to break my promise to myself not to drink for one full year. Well, it’s Day 1 again, and I need some help getting back on the wagon this time. It’s really hard, and I’m afraidContinue reading “Day 1 and Reaching Out”
