Anger

I became extremely angry today. Some evil person deeply hurt someone I love. First time I have been this angry and sober at the same time. Whew! Asked God to get me through. Tried to keep my thoughts on the high road. Did not act out. Talked to my sponsor. The only thought of alcohol I had was "I would have drank about this 45 days ago. But not today!!!" Never realized how painful anger is until today (probably because I was always drunk in the past.) Wasn't able to fix anything for my loved one. But, I got really PO'd and I didn't drink. Thank you God. Be well, everyone.

Awesome. That calls for a big muscle flex of your emotional strength. You handled it exactly how I would have. No expert here, but I do have four plus years of continuous sobriety. Hand it all over to God. It works every time for me. Good job.

You did good, Girlie.

We have to almost, learn to deal with all our emotions again, without alcohol.

Yes well done Girlie you are quite right. Worse than the anger sometimes is the feeling of frustration if you can't do anything about what this person has done. As a sober person you can at least be supportive of the person you care about

Good for you for feeling so much anger and just getting through it. That's how it's done.

Well done. I know how hard that can be as anger was my biggest trigger. Turned out alcohol perpetuated the problem and going through it is much more effective than drinking on it x
