39 months tomorrow

Celebrating 3 plus years tomorrow. I've been a little edgy lately due to some chronic back issues which have gotten worse this past month. I usually have success with going to the chiropractor but this time the inflammation is really bad. I used to not feel stuff like that because I was somewhat drunk more or less all the time. But at least I'm sober and dealing with it sober. I have two mini vacations coming up in the next three months. I have a lot more money now since I don't waste it in bars and such. I'm a little worried about these trips though as one is a short Christmas cruise and the other is to a known party place which have other things also. The trick I guess is to concentrate on those other things. Thanks for listening to my rant.

Congratulations on your sobriety. Doing (and learning) new things in sobriety has helped me shift my thoughts away from drinking alcohol. Have fun on your trips!!

Congratulations on all that sober time, I hope I can one day say the same thing! I have 60 days tomorrow... and I wanted to drink tonight and am glad I decided to medicate my emotional pain with food instead, LOL! I am learning that I can get through bad days just fine with or without alcohol, but if I have the choice to get sick or not get sick, I might as well not get sick? My, what a choice. hahaha
