DAY 13 - Recalibrating Friendships

Can I just say how amazing it is to be able to wake up at 6:00 am! I literally roll over, turn OFF my alarm (instead of hitting snooze) and jump out of bed. I have zero hangover symptoms. I have a clear head and ready to conquer the day. I do not feel regret or ashamed of the night before. I know EXACTLY who I spoke to and what I said last night...and I do not carry any guilt for yesterday. I don't have to go on Instagram and retrace my intoxicated likes and comments. I can do this!

This morning I woke up to my 6:00 am alarm with no problem! Wow!
I woke up with a positive attitude and a smile on my face. I haven't felt this great in a very long time. I will not take this feeling for granted and will use this power to give my life a boost. So I set quite a few goals for the day. Mainly school, I'm working on the 4th Real Estate education course, 2 more courses to go before I get my license, and it's been long and grueling! Today I see the light at the...

Christmas break officially ends today for my daughter (14), she returns to 8th grade tomorrow. The past 3 weeks both of her cousins and she were either at our house, my sister's house or my mom's house. I did a lot of driving kids around, I take them to the mall, I take them to get their nails done, I cook for them, I make fun snacks for them, I take them to Six Flags, I take them to the trampoline park. I listen to their problems, I put up with their bs, I let them stay up until 3:00am, I intervene...

If you have never tried AA and you are searching for something to help you stop, AA may be for you. I am going to describe my personal experiences. I am not writing this to discourage anyone from at least trying it out, it may save your life, but I also know I am not the only one who felt completely uncomfortable. I've been to 3 different locations to see if I could find a fit. This is how it went...

*Disclosure - I smoke sometimes when I drink, along with other bad choices...

I have done this sober thing over one hundred times and failed but there have only been TWO times where I actually was mentally prepared and strong enough.

I don't go to AA meetings, I didn't like them mostly because you have to say, "Hi there, I'm _________, and I'm an alcoholic." Alcohol is my addiction, and red wine is my vice. I love to go on Instagram and compare my addicted self to all these perfect women who seem to have all their **** together. Their perfect...
