Day 176: normal life

02413129-55A8-47A9-9A0E-CC133845F31D

Today I had some serious anger issues.

But – imagine this – my feelings had nothing to do with alcohol or the lack of alcohol. Nothing to do with my new sober life. My anger was actually caused by foot pain, naughty dogs, clueless children, a messy house, and too much humidity. All at once. So, in other words, my anger was caused by normal life, a normal bad day. And I asked myself, does this anger make me want to drink wine? And the answer was no, this anger makes me want to go to bed.

So I did that for a little while, complained to my husband for a little while, and then had a snack. And now things are much better.

Look at me being all adult-like with healthy coping mechanisms! ☺️

Happy Sober Wednesday,

jen
