I was worried about days like this...

I was at work when I got frantic texts from my mom who was in hysterics over a family emergency. Had to stop what I was doing to get on Skype and try to help her from half way across the world. Just when that happened, one of my students start hitting another teacher and calling her a stupid f###ing b**ch. Worked through my lunch to write a 13 page report. Still haven't heard back from my dream job that I interviewed for.

Normally, I would have collapsed under the stress, booked it outta work and drank. Not today. I am over 4 months sober. I can't control anyone's behavior but my own. Right now I in bed and I am alcohol free and going to sleep. Another small victory...

Definitely a wise move!
Drinking wouldn't have solved any of those issues.

SasaKay, to call is a small victory is like to call Everest a molehill!

It's a HUGE victory not to turn to booze under such circumstances!

Congrats on 4 months - you are doing great)

Great job! Every victory builds a stronger foundation for sobriety, giving you evidence to look back on that you can do this. No more turning to an old and frankly ineffective solution for tough days! And you'll feel even better tomorrow not waking up with a hangover, anxiety, regret, and on and on.

Inspirational.. And I don't say that lightly. Things much smaller than that will still be enough to push me over. It's so great to see you achieve this huge achievement! x
