A big shout out to my blogging friend at Mental Rollercoaster. She is only DAYS away from the big 1 YEAR mark 🙂 Woot Woot and Toot Toot!! Congratulations!
I would like to post more often but find I don’t have anything to tell. It’s a hum drum life, but I am sober. I miss having things to share. I could talk about my other issues (I have something going on with my bladder so I can’t train for my half marathon until it gets fixed). But that’s not what this blog is about.
I still have serious “pangs” in the early evening. Every day (still) I’m ready to throw in the towel and just give up because I want to go drink. It hangs on about a half hour. I have my moments of frustration with it, and then it’s gone. I distract myself with. . . . well, life. There are lots of things I want to do and I know that I won’t be able to give 100% to them if I drink. And if I can’t give 100%, then I use that as an excuse to not even get started. “So let’s just go have a drink, shall we?” Oh you are so evil, wolfie.
I just hope to God that when I hit the 365 day mark, this nonsense in my brain will be gone. It’s exhausting.
