I am closing in on 9 months sober this time around. And it still has its rough spots. That witching hour is just the worst. Really. It started again full force about 2 weeks ago. I’m assuming it’s because I’m currently under lots of stress. Self inflicted stress but stress nonetheless. It’s a grin and bear it – almost white knuckle – situation. That 4pm to 7pm just sucks. Hate it, hate it.
Because of this sudden turn of events, I decided to go back in my posts to what 9 months was like the last time I did this it’s still cyclical. . . It’s like deja vu. Same stuff different day.
Knowing that for me, this is “normal”, and knowing that I will get through it no worse for wear gives me hope. So a thanks to myself for blogging what I was feeling back then as it has come back to help me this time 🙂
