Today I Really Wish I Wasn't An Alcoholic

Today I really wished I wasn't an alcoholic. Lately, I have been fine- but today was a long day. A. Really. Long. Day. Something about standing up for 3 hours in this heat really got me. My feet hurt, my back hurt... blah. So, I was cranky and tired and thought how nice it would be to be like everyone else I know- who were going to go home and have a drink or two and call it a day. I thought about how easy it would be to fall back in the habit of grabbing some beer on the way home.  But I didn't- I am on day 53 of sobriety, and honestly- making the decision to stay sober is a lot easier than making the decision to GET SOBER. Looking forward to hitting my 60 day mark. 


  1. keep perserving, sweetie. You are a proud example of going to any lengths.....very good!!

  2. Thank you. The encouragement and support I get from this blog is a tremendous help for me. Nothing like a little positive peer pressure to keep me on the straight and narrow!

  3. i am so incredibly proud of you and your honesty. it helps me beyond measure to hear someone speak honestly like you are doing here.

    i will raise my glass of ice cold sparkling water on day 60 and celebrate with you!


  4. Thanks for your kind comment. This is my first visit here. Have you tried AA? The fellowship goes a long way to remove those thoughts of drinking.

  5. thanks for your answers to friday questions. I like your blog layout and candor in your posts.
    try to be patient with the physical and emotional rollercoaster; it does get better!
    exercise and diet are crucial--limit sugar and simple carbs, add some protein drinks and use vitamin B-complex. don't just count days; make the days count!
