Sober Sunday!

It's a traveling weekend. One in which the last few days is typically FULL of food and booze. Who am I kidding.....BOOZE...and more booze.

I woke up this morning, almost giddy! This is the second time I've done this particular weekend sober. Sober! And it rocks!

No worrying about who I said/did what to last night. And now, a sober car ride home.

Who else is feeling grateful to be sober?

SR, you ROCK!

Feeling grateful to be sober at the moment too!! Feels great!!

It is so true that a grateful alcoholic won't feel the need to drink. True with this alcoholic anyway...

very easy for the gratitute to nosedive though and it can strike without warning very quickly I have found. But I am ever vigilante, not fearfull or anything like that (far from it!) but I am ever aware that I am only ever one drink away. Makes you appreciate these times more! Tis a daily reprieve.

I'm very grateful to be sober today. It's nearly 5pm here and I have got so much done today it's unreal!

And I am not dreading Monday morning, another thing to be very grateful for.

Anyone else?

Well, this is the first weekend of our 30-day experiment. I usually have a terrible depression every Sunday, no matter what. I woke up and did laundry, a little cleaning, we're enjoying a nice fire, and I have a pot of seafood etouffee on the stove.

I feel great and my Sunday depression has left the building.

I am grateful to be sober today!!

Last night, I cooked a very nice dinner and DH said "There is still one more bottle of wine I put up, do you want it with dinner?" (actually, he had to hide it from me!)
I easily declined (Hard to believe!).....and DH said "You have quit for real this time, haven't you?" YES, I have (I feel like shouting it from the rooftops!!!!)......In the past, I would have given in right away to have a drink, or I would have obsessed over it for hours until I justified that it was OK......NOT this time!! I never gave it another thought and enjoyed a wonderful meal with my DH!!!

Yes, I am very grateful to be sober at the end of my day 8!!

First weekend that I can remember in forever! Went to gym this morning, now work and a AA meeting! Sundays Rock! I actually remember the movies that my wife and watched. So in a couple of days I wont say "hey lets watch that movie." and she will look at me all funny and go "We just watched that a couple of days ago....don't you remember???"
Nice!
I wish MycoolFitz was here!

Nice!
That makes me laugh. I shouln't laugh because it is not funny. I've put DVDs on and my son has screamed at me "but we have watched that, Mum". Have we ???

Thank god, I don't have to do that again. Another reason to be grateful for being sober.
