One of the most important keys to my success in maintaining these nine months of sobriety is this blog. Isn’t that amazing? Such an important source of support and it comes from people I’ve (mostly – hi Wendy!) never met. I remember a day when I really wanted to ditch everything and head to the liquor store (day 38). But the thought of shutting down the blog gave me pause and instead of drinking, I wrote out my frustrations. That’s when Deb shared her “upward spiral” image which encourages me still. And Anne commented – please don’t disappear. And that thought really stuck with me too. People would notice if I went away.
And here I still am. Not disappearing.
Thank you, everyone, for reading. It makes all the difference.
Happy Sober Sunday,
