A simple guy making his way

Thump thump thump.... Really?
On my back door at 10:30 last night. I go to bed early now that I am abstinent. So it woke me up.
I don't know many in the area so who the F could this be?
My dealer? Really? And I don't mean car.
Ok... This is wrong on so many levels but when you take away $1500 a month in income from someone they tend to resist a little.
First off I did not use even with the opportunity in my face.
I was pissed. Really angry. I never opened the door and yelled at him through the glass.
Now this guy is harmless as I have known him three years now. But he is tenacious.
The good in this is twofold... Obviously I did not use... AND...I pissed him off by balling him out and not buying that he will not do that again.
If there was going to be a physical confrontation it was going to be from the sleepy former user standing in his underwear late at night. Ha ha!
I describe this flippantly because I am kind of on a high. Yes I did not use.... And that makes me feel great...
But today is my 18 anniversary! My partner and I promised each other a sober before during and after this date and we are doing it!
Going out to dinner tonight and beach tomorrow for a sober celebration. Our first in at least 10 years. That's a lot of wasted time.
I have certainly struggled these last few weeks. Things are not getting easier but I am getting stronger.
When it comes right down to it I win by staying abstinent and getting on with the good things in life.
I have dramatic ups and downs still but I am rolling a bit better with them not drinking.
Thanks everyone for your continued support. It is making a huge difference to me!

Happy Anniversary Weasel! Hope you guys enjoy a wonderful celebration.
Loved your story about the dealer-good for you for resisting a huge temptation and telling the guy off!! I'm sure that wasn't easy. Dealers probably hate it when people quit
