Moving On

24 Dec

After yesterday’s drinking, I do feel terrible. My body isn’t used to it now. 

BUT, as I was doing it I didn’t enjoy it, I was already thinking ahead to staying sober for good.

I’ve slipped up quite a few times this year, but every time I do it just reminds me how brilliant being sober is. I love it! And I don’t love being drunk. Or hungover. Or guilty. 

I don’t know exactly what happened yesterday, to be honest, I think being home at my parents for Christmas and in what I thought was a safe environment threw me. I’m not used to having to use my sober toolkit here, because my drinking issues are relatively recent and (usually) confined to my life away from home. 

Anyway, I slipped, once again I’ve learnt and I’m coming back to the sober side immediately 🙂 What a rollercoaster this whole thing is!

    This is a hard time of the year to be in early sobriety. Keep being kind to yourself. Thank you for letting us know what you are going through. Sending you happy thoughts from afar. xx
