Today’s wisdom, thanks to the amazing sober blogging community:
Sometimes just confessing that you have a doubt or a fear or a negative thought makes all the difference.
When The Voice starts talking crazy shit, tell on it. Bring it into the light.
Feel like drinking? Tell someone who’s sober.
Feel like your sober life isn’t as good as you’d like it to be? Tell someone who has what you want.
Feel annoyed that other people drink? Tell someone who understands.
Sometimes The Voice tells me – lots of people drink too much and never do anything about it, so why not join them? Why do you have to be such an overachiever all the time?
What a load of crap. As Birdie said last week, “Ignore the wine Witch. She’s a false friend who whispers lies.”
There. See? I feel better already. 🙂
