26 Nov

Today is most definitely a pink cloud day. 

I got up at 6:15 really refreshed, went to the gym, was in work very early and got some personal tasks done and am feeling incredibly content.

Last week was tough, I was riding cravings and energy slumps, feeling happy to be sober but still feeling I was clinging onto it and that the rug might be pulled from under my feet.

Yesterday evening I went to a dinner where wine was being poured freely and glasses topped up continually. I turned down wine the first time it came round and filled my wine glass up with water. That was that. It’s getting easier and easier to say no, but it also isn’t really occurring to me to drink. I don’t want to, because I know what the consequences are and am ecstatic to have moved away from the drudgery of drinking. It’s just, well, quite boring to drink like I drank. Once again, I had a much better evening because I didn’t drink.

I’m wary of party season coming up, where it will undoubtedly seem like a really good idea to drink, but I know that’s just wolfie’s voice taunting me and that if I drink, it will take weeks if not months to get sober again.

 And let’s be honest, who wants another Day 1?

    FFF … sometimes I think the only reason I stayed sober early on was because I didn’t want to go back to another day 1—ever! 🙂
