Preparing my Ammunition

30 Nov

Tonight is the party.

Just as I’ll spend an hour doing my hair and make-up, I’m spending an hour preparing my mind to fight wolfie.

Right now, I feel like a drink would be a good idea, but I KNOW that this is wolfie. I’m reading back  my old posts, posts I love from others and reflecting on how amazing the last 20 sober days have been.

I’m about to do a meditation on what being sober means to me, just giving myself some space before the madness begins.

Going to slip on my Fuck You Wolfie bracelet and if he pipes up at any time, take some space and email Belle or Carrie who has been amazing.

I can do this, I just need the focus to remind myself why I am.

Wolfie, it’s fight night, and the odds are against you.

    May the odds be ever in your favour (sorry – I just saw the second Hunger Games movie last night). You’re on top of this – have a great time.

    Good luck honey. You can do it. I had my first big part of the season last night and I had a GREAT night sober. And, toward the end of the night, merely found the too-drunk people kind of boring/annoying. It really is the company/conversations/atmosphere/music/food etc that make a night great. It’s not about the booze. You can rock this sober. Look forward to hearing all about it. xx
