Monday morning

It's the morning of day 13. I have about an hour before I start work. I can feel the anxiety building and now my AV is trying to talk me in to having a drink before work. It's saying that I deserve a drink for how well I've done these last 13 days and that it will only be one drink. Absolutely crazy. It's not going to happen, but its very annoying and isn't helping my stress level at all. I'm staying sober and gonna do my best to absolutely own this Monday at work.

Congrats on almost two weeks sober! Ignore that voice. It's a liar and a thief. Don't drink, no matter what. You can do this.

I wrote this down on an index card and put it on my wall right behind my desk so I can see it all day long. I have so many index cards with reminders and quotes on the wall right there. I find it to be very helpful. Thank you least.

Congratulations on 13 days. That's great. Having a drink before work is not a good idea. Tell the little voice to get lost.

Keep going! Glad you posted instead of picking up.
