Grounded on Day 115

Dear Readers,
I am feeling grounded today.
Tired from traveling and visiting, but so happy, happy, happy, 
I didn't drink.

Except for Christmas Eve, I didn't have any urges, and never felt sorry for myself, even during a dinner and all day Christmas where other people were drinking. I felt more like myself than I have in a long time. (I even liked my crabby self! LOL) 

Such a sweet feeling, one I want again. 

Everyone says it only gets better, the longer you are sober. 
All the bloggers say so.
All the women in Women for Sobriety say so.
All the AA people say so.
All the people who quit on their own say so.

So I will believe them and keep on counting!

  1. I've been thinking about this too, how everyone says it only gets better. I sometimes wish I could magically be in the future with all of the hard stuff behind me. But for now I'm with you.

  2. I hope it gets better. Because right now it is so not easy and so not better. Boy did I choose a wrong time to quit. Temptations are everywhere. You are doing great! Keep inspiring me. :)

    1. Anna,
      I am keeping the reasons I am quitting foremost in my brain!
      I sure don't want to go back to the icky times.
      It is a difficult time of year, for sure!
      Peace and hugs!
