Day 9! 9, I tell you! 9!

I realised that for me the alcoholism coin has two sides. One side is the booze, and I have put that down. The other side is resentment and negative feelings, and that one I carry around with me all the time. This is what I need to deal with if I am to stay sober. I am learning to feel my uncomfortable feelings without going into a panic and trying to push them away. Uncomfortable feelings are uncomfortable, but they won't kill me and I am ignoring my AV when it tells me a drink would be a good idea. I can walk or drive past a liquor store without wanting to go in. I am, however, eating a lot of chocolate hahaha.
