Awkward wedding

So I am 8 days sober!! Wooh! I went to a family wedding tonight and did not drink. I felt so many emotions at the wedding. I didn't want to dance because I usually never dance when I'm sober. I did get the courage to dance to one song but that was it. It so crazy how I used to rely on alcohol to make me feel confident in myself. A good thing I can take from this is that I'm getting in tought with my feelings/thoughts and slowly gaining confidence in who I am. I am proud I didn't drink, I was one of the small perentage who didn't ! Wooh

That's so great, Jackie!

I remember I went dancing the first day of the first time (ultimately failed, but that's beside the point) I tried to quit drinking. I felt really sad and lost. I love dancing, but of course I'd always be drinking. Without any booze I felt weird and gawky and angular.

Happy to report that this time around I've slowly worked up the confidence again. Not quite back to drinking levels yet, but I'm dancing again and loving it. Oh and I never have to pretend that a little stumble was totally an intentional move.
