Had to take a break from the pages but wanted to say HAPPY NEW, kids!

Hiya,
Some of you have been so gracious as to check in on me this last month and I'm happy to say that I'm still a member of the class of Dec 2014! Had some slips but wanted to be sober more than anything and just kept setting up a life without booze with every new day. For some reason my sights were really set on the new year and just kept telling myself that if I could just get there without doing something unfixable then it would all be ok.

I don't think things will be easy here on out but feel like I'm finally at a place again where I want a different type of life- not just "trying so hard not to drink" and it makes it easier. The last couple times I drank last month I hated it so much and just wanted to be sober again so I could read or exercise or be anything other than drunk.

As I'm sure a lot of you can relate to, this didn't happen over night or even within a couple months. It has probably been about the last 2 years of not denying my problem, then work and want and work and even more want.

Happy New Year all and thank you for the support and safe place!
