Unhappy Hurdles

Today phone messages;
-Come to the Marina, my friends were having drinks, etc...... -No I am not drinking.... -Does not mater just come to see us, do not have to take anything... but they do not understand I can not go near it!!!

I really should Not keep in touch with them...
But so many years of friendship....
Plus at the bottom I know I do not want to loose my contacts either...If you understand…So I said another day... and shouldn’t!

Then I go I look down the balcony and I see a bloke smoking pot in the park just bellow me...

Tomorrow morning breakfast with a friend, she does not smoke in front of me, she smokes before we meet up, and knows I quit all, but I know I can say give me some… and I get nervous…
After I got the paint workshop party, they all drink like fish. So I am taking coca-cola to the party

On Sunday the family communion: my dad will get drunk, my brother angry and I protecting my mum, and what ever you do not drink…

By Sunday evening I will be going up the walls!!!
If I had something to strive for it would be so much easier
I would not care if I see or are offered!!!
9 months and still my head is going on and on

Flipping weekendddddddddddddd ahead…

There are hurdles in life. You are a cheetah. Hurdles make you laugh.

Hurdle them all, Aiko.

That sounds like one heck of a weekend!

But think of how much better you'll feel about yourself once you make it through that sober. If you can make it through that, you can make it through just about anything it sounds like

First Round

HI I got through today! Not a Drop Not a Smoke Not a Pill....
I was tempted tonight to pop in my friends house but I can not go near...

Lets see how my dad behaves tomorrow...
At chrismas he could not even put the seat belt on!!!

But I am not sure I can keep on much longer...
I have appointment next week with psico, I am wearing out!

I made it!

I did not drink at all!!!
I got the banquet and sat in front of the wine bottles, even got pressured to have a spirits, again and again...
and just kept saying Zero Coke PLEASE!!!

My mum had an unpleasant incident with my dad as usual
but I was not at the time to stop him… Luckily he behaved in public and left...

Thank you for giving me support the weekend…
I do appreciate your time and care very much.
Big Hug XO
