On a scale of one to ten, I’d rate my first sober Thanksgiving a two. Sadly. After all this time and many other events I’ve done sober, I thought it would be easier. But my nerves were jangling, I was edgy, angry, sometimes even near tears. I lost my temper with my husband over something stupid and he got mad right back. Last year on Thanksgiving the booze got between us and I shortly decided to give it up. And now this year the not drinking got between us instead. I feel like I can’t win.
Sorry this is so negative. I hope the rest of you had a better day.
