Little victory 😃


These last few days I've really struggled,with wanting to find oblivion, I've really put the work in mentally to fight that little voice that pops up saying " a couple won't hurt " I threw myself into work and had a plan to keep occupied. IT WORKED 😃
I can say out loud I DID IT . Feeling l pretty proud of myself right now. I'm not gonna lie it's been tough but I got through it.
Onwards and upwards, that was a particularly difficult few days. I know ill have them again, but knowing I found the strength to get through it has made me find my fire again 😃
Much love to everyone that struggles, boy I know how that feels. We all do. Just keep going

I wish that getting through one day sober means I am good to go.

That is not the deal at all. I feel like new or old experiences are triggers.

I must have the foundation that I am a non drinker. I get the chance to continue my life clean.

The few minutes or hours I experience when I am drunk are not worth the mind altering recovery.

Booze is poison. Amen. Thanks God I am clean.

Thanks.

Well I never had a couple of drinks so I wouldn’t know if it hurts or not. What I did have hurt a lot.
