Day 4

Posted 07-13-2017 at 07:08 AM by Beachchic

I made it another day without a drink! NO hangover again. Went to a meeting with some wise men yesterday and it definitely helped. Last night was difficult the ah was not happy with me again for wanting to stay sober. I try to explain the long list of reasons I need to quit.. He ended up going out for a bit. I understand he is not ready to quit. I know that when I was not ready no one could tell me to. Mainly he wants to keep our old lifestyle and I can't do that and be sober. Anyways I hope things...

Day 3

Posted 07-12-2017 at 08:41 AM by Beachchic

Here we go again. I've been binge drinking for about 20 years.The guilt of my lifestyle and the fact I'm not getting any younger has really caught up with me. I want to be a better parent and stay that way. I want to see my grandchildren if I ever have any. Today I have hope for the future. My main struggle is dealing with my ah. He does not like it when I stop drinking. As a matter of fact he shuts down and will hardly look at me sometimes. I know he will keep drinking. He is not ready. The emotional...

“Suspend your judgment, and every being has something to teach you.” – Qui-Gon Jinn

The Daily Jedi: Focus

“Always remember, your focus determines your reality” – Qui-Gon Jinn

Focus

If you focus on wrongs you energize anger, resentment and frustration. If you focus on forgiveness you energize patience, tolerance and compassion. Focusing on fault leads to accusation and fails to lead to resolution. Shifting attention to finding a solution energizes action.

It is better to say “things are tough right now but it will get better with hard work” than “Why me? Life...
