Good morning AV

Wow. So I had a very vivid dream about going on a bender last night and was regretting the decision in the dream. I was relived when I woke up, first thought was that was a dream I'm good.

The main reason for this post is that I'm noticing familiar thoughts of romanticizing drinking. There are a few significant milestones coming up today and over the next week. All positive but Ive noticed even positive experiences can still be intense and cause emotional spikes with me.

One of which is 90 days of sobriety tomorrow! That on itself is huge but I'm also finishing physical therapy school. And the congratulatory buy you a drink offers are already coming in.

Long story long my AV has been turned up lately and I'm feeling worn down. Leaning on my SR community for some acute support.

Congratulations on your sober time. That is huge!

And congrats on finishing school. I always thought that people would be so disappointed that I couldn't partake with them anymore. Nobody really cared.

There are a lot of other ways to reward yourself for a great accomplishment. You deserve it.

Congratulations, seeks!

Big events, milestones, even changes in season tend to make my AV feisty, I have noticed. Remind yourself that this is just a day, like any other day. Maybe join the 24 hour club? I have to fall back on ODAAT thinking when lots is going on and all I can see are days laced with triggers.

Good luck and enjoy celebrating your accomplishments!
