A Year of Sobriety

Posted 04-13-2015 at 12:02 PM by SoberLife2014

I've been meaning to post something about this, but I kept putting it off. Today I realized that it's important to myself that I write about this.

I've been sober a little over 14 months now.

During my first year of sobriety nothing around me really changed. Well, I had a baby actually. That changed things a lot. He was 5 months old when I had my last drink. But I still had to deal with stress. In fact, there was a lot more stress than there was before. I had more...

Why Lulu Doesn't Moderate

Posted 10-01-2014 at 11:19 AM by SoberLife2014

I'm writing this not only for my self, but in hopes that maybe it'll help someone who is considering moderation.

First, let me start off by telling you what happened last time I tried to moderate. After everything I had been through I still thought that maybe it'd be OK to drink, as long as I moderated and kept in under control. I had been sober for 3 months and all I wanted was to relax a little. The last time didn't work because I drank too much. I won't do that this time. I started...

Here goes...

Posted 09-02-2014 at 10:22 AM by SoberLife2014

During my recovery I've really struggled with the "spiritual" side of it all. When I was active in AA I found myself actually forcing myself to believe in God. I remember talking about God and every time I even uttered the word it felt so fake in my heart. But of course I believed in a higher power. It just wasn't the same as what every one else appeared to be talking about. God was their buddy. God answered their prayers. I so badly wanted to let this God into my heart. I remember lying...

Here's where I'm at today: Today I have forgiven myself for the things I did during my alcoholism. Of course I'm sad I did them and of course I wish I wouldn't have done them, but I can't change the past. There are some consequences that I live with today and I accept that, but the past is gone. Only memories remain and those memories can be my salvation. The future doesn't even exist yet. All I have is today.

There are no excuses for what I did, but all I can say is that I made...

My husband comes home tomorrow. Yay! Today is the last day I have to be alone for a while, but this week hasn't been too bad. I managed to stay busy, kept a good attitude, and of course blogged like crazy. I learned a lot about myself and I feel even more confident in my sobriety. Even though I made it through this week the journey isn't over and I'll have to continue to be vigilant.

Today I wanted to share some of the tools/ quotes/ and whatever else that has helped me remain sober...
