DAY 5 - Friends and Cocktails

Posted 01-03-2019 at 09:03 AM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

5 days sober! Good feelings about myself are starting to trickle in. I woke up with a "Sober for Life" mission, still, so that's awesome. I feel achey, though. My liver and pancreas hurt so I continue to take all my supplements: mushroom powder, matcha green powder, Vegan plant protein powder, enzyme support, liver support, probiotic and multi vitamins.

If I'm truthful, having a friend here who was drinking was not as hard as I thought it would be. It would have been easier had she not bought the wine round but I had said that she could so I have to be big enough to take that on the chin.

...a couple of friends came round tonight (a couple) and I talked to my female friend earlier in the week and talked about how I wasn't drinking. She expressed some surprise and said, "But it's the weekend! We always drink at the weekend!"

Yeah. They might always drink at the weekend but what she doesn't know about me is that I drink every day of the week (or did). THIS is the big one for me, that everyone I know drinks (all but one friend actually) and that we all judge...
