Sober Time

I found this cool App that speaks to me – I love it because everytime I open it up it gives me a new quote and you can add whatever ‘addiction’ you want to it. My plan for steady ‘sober time’ for an extended period of time (not putting a specific number of days that this extended period will cover just yet) will begin Monday September 5th … and from now to then – my plan is to be mindful of my daily practices. Focusing on self-care and self-love.

One day at a time … and today is going to be an AF day for me!

I’m trying to NOT overwhelm myself with demands. With the upcoming transition I’m going through – my entire LIFE is being changed and the anxieties leading up to that are surfacing in many ways. I am trying to cope in healthy ways (this morning’s workout felt great – so amazing in how it sets the tone for the day for me). My daughter’s moods and reactions to this transition are not easy to take – but this too I must take in stride and recognize that it’s coming from a 15 year old who thinks this is the end of the world… while it may in fact be a very positive shift for her as well.

Fourteen years of living on my own for me and moving in with a partner – HUGE leap for me but not one I have taken lightly… We have been seeing each other almost 2 years and it’s the next logical step.

I think that once the move is done, once the summer socials are done – including the celebration at the last festival where I’ll celebrate my 50th – I’ll be ready to set myself up with this new life … and get ‘back to school’ on getting back to living life FULLY – appreciating the new, including a new habit of MORE Sober Time!

    I do have days where I think about drinking, and I want to have some wine, especially after PT, but my partner helps me if its during the week. Yesterday was thursday, we bought some rum, but we didn’t have it till 8:00pm at nite. it was hard to wait. But I don’t feel bad about it. Hang on!
