a positive thought about 2018 so far
 
I've been feeling pretty low this month, mostly because I've been failing to stay sober for more than a week at a time since stringing together 50 days back in January...But today I did the math and I realize I've definitely been sober more days than not in 2018 so far. 50-60% sober isn't anything great but, well, 2017 wouldn't have been anywhere close. So, it is something to be proud of, even if I'm still struggling.

Thought I would share my positive thought in case thinking about sober time this way helps anyone else :) I really have to fight black and white thinking, and I know many alcoholics are the same. :tyou

I felt half as good when I drank twice as much and twice as good when I drank half as much.

You should feel really proud that you're not giving in Prof.

Keep adding to your recovery plan - the more effort in the right places the better :)
