Life is finally feeling brighter everyday that I’m sober. I’m starting to see joy again, I just got back from an amazing vacation to Cancun, I had the time of my life.
I remember being concerned if I would slip up and suck down a cold corona, but I didn’t. Then I sat at the pool with my girlfriends drinking it up enjoying themselves of course, which was fine with me and I didn’t. I still had my sparkling water with lime, that works for me. We all laughed, talked and still enjoyed the water and sites with them. So all that uncertainty was gone as soon as I saw my own suite and the view was unbelievable. I even saw a shooting star.
I felt like a new woman, respected, loved,and watched over by everyone but that was ok. I enjoy every moment of my trip and will never forget how it changed me.
thank god I’m staying sober today😊👏🌠☀️
Hello Bloggers, I have a question what are some ways to prepare myself for a getaway to Cancun with my lifelong drinking girlfriends. How can I understand that I will never be that loud, outgoing, fearless, hilarious, annoying, drunk person again.
She is long gone, I’ve transformed into a healthy, breast cancer survivor, domestic violence survivor and now know that I have mixed bipolar disorder and of course alcoholism. She feels great and has to go to this vacation retreat but I’m scared I might slip up, I’ve been sober 402 days of not one sip of alcohol. My drink of choice was Budweiser, my dreaded brutal second husband that I had for 35 year relationship. Like all relationship we started of great so much fun and excitement. Such a feeling, my getaway from(which is another story) the world as a young, naive, scared, unguided, young woman.
Well right now I’m intending on going with no fear of relapse but still in the back of my head I don’t trust myself. That’s why I hope some people have some advice for my situation.
I am starting a new way of living and I love it but need to come out of my shell, I feel like blogging can bring out that new woman and get rid of bullshit that’s held me back from being the person I should be. So learning and reading others lives and how to overcome is another reason I started to blog.
So being new to this, I am excited to join blogging 101.
The weather is changing for the better and being 399 days sober is me changing for the better.
I like reading your blog it is so similar to my life. I just started my blog and I’m knew to this. So far Iam happy I did because it allows me to reach out to others. I’m 1 year 1 month today, so congrats to you on 6 months!
