Double digits! The last couple of days have been a bit rough. Not with the not-drinking thing. That’s been fine. But, the applying for schools, and figuring out what to do next year … it’s been brutal. Anyway, just checking in to say, “Yay! I’m not drinking!!!” xoxo

It was a good day. Had some social time with friends and went for a long walk in the park. In other news, my addict voice keeps coming around, trying to make me forget what I knew so clearly a week ago. No! I can’t just have a few! I want the whole bottle (andContinue reading “Day 8”
Woo hoo! One week! Only 51 more for a year! Just kidding. 🤪 One day at a time and all that. I am looking forward to the weekend. I am also very seriously considering taking this opportunity of choosing a new school to get my family out of this big, busy rat race of aContinue reading “Day 7”
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”

It is a long story, but the whole situation isContinue reading “Day Five”

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.
Day 5: Still here
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
