from the Stumbling to the Standing: the cycle

Came out of a few months of sobriety, back whole-hog into the drinking when my living situation changed. Been playing the poverty game and realizing I need to start the sobriety project again. I'm feeling hopeful and building my support network. Trying to find my footing in a new situation with my same old challenges.

Well, Dee74: it starts with not drinking, going to a meeting this morning, and focusing my social interactions towards my sober friends.

Getting ready to tell the people I'm close to about my alcoholism.
Start to eat regularly and get more engaged with the farm chore schedule (where I live.)
Develop my coping skill activities more, drawing, writing, meditating, and doing woodworking.
I guess that's my rough sketch...
