Well done Jj, such a great achievement to resist at a special party. I hope you enjoyed yourself.

Lynn & Sammie..........we’re doing this and it feels good waking on a Sunday without a hangover in sight. I’m grateful for that.

Day 21/100 or 98 minus 6. I was going to be 100 days on 3rd December. As you know it went a bit wrong and had 6 drinking days. In a funny way I am glad I did. It was then that my daughter told me how upset she was and about a couple of incidents when she was a small child. I guess that was a huge wake up call for me. I’ve shared on here in the past about some stuff which happened during my drinking, however I never realised it had affected my daughter. When she told me I was devastated.........I mean I was a functioning binge drinker with a nice home etc etc etc. Surely I couldn’t have harmed anyone. But you see I did and I never really knew how much. So my relapse was meant to happen, was part of my journey and has enabled me to continue. My intention had been to get to 100 days and then as I have a Christmas Do that night I would drink.

The events during those 6 days cemented my resolve to stay sober for good. I’m no longer frightened of the fact that I will never pick up a drink again, I realise what an addictive evil substance it is. I see how others are addicted too in some shape or form, some not quite as I was and others worse. I feel sorry for them as they don’t have the knowledge or the inclination to do anything about it. Today I have both of those. I have in the past but instead of battling through at those long term anniversaries I succumbed to the words of the wine witch.

I think I mentioned I’m re reading Clare Pooley’s Sober Diaries again, a mirror image of myself. So like her and I feel I could have written the same book. She fought through it, tooth and nail. I will do the same. I’ve been doing AA meetings. to be honest isn’t me but I will stick around there if only once a week to stay in tune.

A frozen, and very cold morning.........but a beautiful one nevertheless. Happy Sunday peeps. This is a good place to be <:)>

Morning Jj, what a weekend you’ve had. Sadly I’m well into your new decade, in fact I’m just planning what I shall do for the next big one. OMG how did I get to nearly 60. I read your post on the 2/3 months and was so pleased it went well.

Welcome Darren, I’m glad you hopped over here. It can be quiet at times so it’s nice to have you around.

I hope your weekends have gone well Lynn and Sammie. Spats are you back with us? You can do this. Do you go to AA. Perhaps you would benefit from the odd meeting. I do hope that you are back in the fold.

A round of golf for me this morning 🥶🥶 a winter league match. I’ve just had an email to say the course is open 😡. Anyway another fun packed week ahead........literally. I’ve got so much on this week. Life is good today. I pray to whoever who can make this continue. The one thing which stick in my mind from when I last drank was that the anxiety and worry of how much I would have/not have was so strong. I don’t want any of that crap back, I just want to live my life without having to worry about frigging alcohol. Sorry for swearing I just feel strongly about it. So many years of mental torture.

On a lighter note.........happy Monday 😀😀😀😀

It was great sammie really enjoyed it especially the hour after the party when my son and I snuggled on the sofa opening all my presents and chatting about what a great night it was. That was so precious.
Since then I’ve found it tough as cherry said on the three month thread we feel we deserve a treat after achieving something special. Today was a bit easier.

Hope everyone had a good day

Afternoon. A bit late today. The “do” went well and I got to bed at midnight. Feeling just ok. Not sure why my mood has dipped but I will work through it.

Milestones Jj, really really tough. We think we’re ok and we got through it and them wham it hits us. I’ve caved twice at 12 months and 2 years, so I’m extremely wary. Dig deep my friend.

I’m day 24/100 and I will just keep putting one foot in front of the other <:)>
