13 Mo ystrdy - Update

Hello:

I had my 13 months yesterday...

I'm feeling good about sobriety and although I deal with the AV I am still certain that I will not drink today, or tomorrow, or the day after... you guys get the point

My friends are starting to finally get that I am over it. Went to a party yesterday and didn't even get offered one.

I am still coming to SR. My 24-7 "meeting"!!!

Had a longer post this am but I lost it... Then I thought, just let it go, but posting here is part of my plan and I am working it, so I am posting...

As always: thanks everyone!

Very nice NTT. I'm very happy for you. And I'm sure your family is also happy to have the sober "you".

It's been weird with them... My husband says he is supportive, but is still mourning the loss of his drinking buddy. He is happy, but he doesn't believe I am one, an alchy, he wants me to moderate, but I don't care. I do what I want and protect my sobriety hard. I have had many tough conversations with him.

The rest of my family doesn't say anything about it. Nobody thought I was an alcoholic, problem drinker, neither have my friends, some of them say they admire me, one has joked that I should help him quit, joke, but there is some truth to that because he drinks A LOT.

It's been GREAT with my daughter. I get up every morning feeling great, ready for her, and she does't have to smell my stench. That is one of the best feelings in the world right now for me. I also feel like I look good, my skin, my eyes, everything. I DO NOT miss the hangovers. Having to fake being fine was terrible...
