Feeling better today than I was yesterday, but still know I can feel better than this, slowly slowly I will get there.
Today I met a friend for lunch, I meet her about every 2 months, she’s great fun, she’s funny, self depreciating, has loads of stories and …………she doesn’t drink, she doesn’t drink because she doesn’t like the way it makes her feel and it ruins the next day, she doesn’t need a drink to go out and have fun, she goes to music gigs – on her own when no one will go with her, she goes to parties and dances like no ones watching, she is my kinda sober. She always asks how my sobriety is going and always compliments me on sober days acheived rather than drunken days wasted. I love having friends like this, that I can look up to and aspire to be like.
We are going to Ireland on Monday to stay with hubby family for a week, In all my years of trying to get sober I have never done a sober Irish trip, I’ve done NZ and my family twice, I’ve done 3 summer holidays but never Ireland. Going to start getting things in order, treats planned and the car put in my name so I can be the sober driver. There’s a first time for everything right?
