Peace on Earth
I am 41 days into sobriety and by no means have this licked, but I just wanted to share how I feel today.
I thought being sober through the holidays was going to be maddening. A couple of weeks ago I was filled with angst not knowing how I would get through it.
But today I sit here and I am at peace. I am looking forward to this holiday season because of the fact that I know I will not take a drink. There will be no regrets, no hangovers, and no embarrassing recollections. I will enjoy every second of it with my wife and kids. To know that my schedule will not revolve around getting drunk is a great feeling. I am just going to go with the flow and take in everything that I can. For the first time in a long time I am truly going to be present.
Hoping everyone has a great time over the holidays this year. Thanks to each and everyone of you, this site has been the greatest gift I could have ever received.
