Day 30

I am extremely grateful to be saying that today is day 30 for me. It feels monumental to me, but I know it is only the first step in a very long road. I'm exercising again and eating healthy. I'm also reading more and watching television less. I'm taking part in life and not watching it zoom by.

This weekend I'm going to a reunion, and I am very nervous about it. This will be a much bigger test than going to a restaurant or making it through the weekend. I have never gone to a huge family gathering and not drank alcohol. I guess none of us can really tell the future. Today I am as happy as I've been in a very, very long time. The people who have cared enough to read my posts and let me call them my friend have helped to give me the strength to put down the bottle for an entire month. Reading people's stories and learning what they have gone through and how they have found sobriety has moved me immensely. Finding SR really kicked off my belief that I could have my life back. I want to stay sober. Please keep me in your prayers everyone. This is my biggest hurdle yet.
The Time is Now

You need to give up the life you have in order to have the life that is

A big congratulations on your days, FIM! That's just fantastic. It does feel great, yes?

Do whatever it takes for your get together and don't pick up. You can do it, and you'll feel the better for it. I've even been with a large group that toasted champagne. I tipped the glass and then set it down without touching a drop.

Just have a glass with something other than alcohol and you'll be fine.

Good going, and looking forward to hearing more.

Congats FIM. I guess that makes you a New Years Baby. Last drop at midnight New Years eve and all that. Was it a New Years reolution and if it was make this one be the one that sticks. You can make it through the reunion abd enjoy yourself. Maybe you will be surprised and find a few others in the same space as you. Congrats again.
What it is is what it is.

Only positivity No negativity.
