One month!!!


I have a month of continuous sobriety!!! Getting to go on vacation and will not drink on that no way. It's going to be a healthy vacation. In 2 days it will be officially 2 years since I started my journey. I drank a hand full of times in these two years (I had a stretch with 13 months!!!) because I got complacent. No, no, no! Now I have a month!

Many more to come!

Last Thursday I went to a dinner at out daughter's school mate house. Her parents are definitely drinkers, the dad is a beer expert. He had a special fridge full of them and he trades beer on the Internet. We brought a bottle of wine and when we got there the wife was going to pour us both a glass of wine but I said that I would take a water. I said I used to drink but didn't like it anymore. Nobody asked me a more questions but I can tell I sparked some interest...

I am so glad that j don't drink any more. I know that felt crappy. The day after...

Just an update. Getting excited about my vacation. Going to beautiful places!!! Can't wait. Feel so lucky!!!

I'll be over seas so not really but I have some sober literature to help me stay focused. I hope there's wifi so I can post here at some point.
