Day Fourteen: Today, I am glad I am sober

Two weeks! I’m feeling good (well, I still have a cold and feel yucky, but good with the not drinking). I really haven’t missed drinking today. Of course, it is still not yet the witching hour where I live so I know that could change. But, it’s OK. I know I’m not going to drinkContinue reading “Day Fourteen: Today, I am glad I am sober”

It’s not soContinue reading “Day Six: It’s Thanksgiving and I’m hiding in my room”
