7 days


In five minutes It will be 7 days since my last drink. Thanks to SR/AA and don't forget the Lord Jesus. I don't think I ever prayed so hard. My stomach still hurts a little. I've been eating too much but I'm OK. I can't say it's been easy. Something seems to be talking me out of the first drink. Tonight when I was thinking about it my grand daughter Danielle came to visit. She is almost 22. She told me she was proud of me. Guess that cured the itch for now. One hour at a time for now.
Have a safe Saturday night.
Diana
