I made it back

I made it back! 17 days now. Making meetings 1 or 2 times a day. Calling my sponsor. Reading the book. Making gratitude lists. I'm not playing around with my sobriety this time. I don't want to die this way.

21 days. 3 weeks!
This week has been insanely busy for me with semester finals. I was happy to make a meeting today after having to miss Mon &Tues. Haven't had any drinking dreams though so that's nice. Can't shut my brain off tonight so I'm about to do some guided meditation to help. Friday I meet with my sponsor for big book study. I'm feeling pretty positive today and happy I'm sober!

Day 22 is coming to an end. Today I woke up sober! I took my little to school, came home and took a shower (something I'm doing regularly these days!) I actually put in the effort and did my makeup, went to a meeting, to the grocery store, put in a job application, got my little from the bus stop, made dinner (holy cow I'm on a role), called my sponsor, hit up the last 30 min of another meeting, had dinner, organized some stuff, read some out of my big book and came to check up on you guys. Not drinking is making me feel like a superhero... although this is probably just what everyone else has been doing all along, never what I could do though. I'm feeling fantastic.

Way to go erin8. Stay busy. Beat this disease by never giving in and taking action. Massive amounts of action. We're here for ya!
