    Thats true. The second we think we got this think again. I thought I was deserving of some Birthday wine with my birthday dinner. Its funny that I entertained the idea. I dont even like wine. Just seeking that break from reality let loose happy feeling.
    I didnt. Ate all the birthday cake and food though. Had zero control of that situation. So after 4 days of recklessness I have to pull the reigns back in. All or nothing same mentality different vice. But its the proof I need to show me I dont have it all together and quite possibly never will.
    Carrot juice shots tomorrow

    @donimfp I agree. The whole world has gone to $h*t and it is hard not to be depressed, throw up our hands and say, "What does it matter if I drink?" But as you wisely point out, all that will lead to is a racing heart and terrible anxiety later. I like that you point out that while we have great benefits from sober living, there are still going to be down times. That is just Life.

    @donimfp I can see and totally agree how difficult times and emotions are because of the state of the world. Can you imagine how much worse your dread and depression would be if you were drinking? Ten times worse. I cannot see any positive for drinking anymore- even the fleeting short moments of respite from the realities of life, is so not worth the rabbit hole drinking brings me down.

    I do think many times a day about drinking still; I wonder when that will lessen. But so far it has been 28 days of sobriety for me and hopefully 29 tomorrow.

    89 days - that is terrific~ :)

    It's nice you turned to writing about your feelings at 12:30 a.m.; that is good therapy in itself. Wishing you a better week. <3

    @JenT304 For sure, that racing heart and days of anxiety are just not worth it. Oh how we have suffered through those.

    @donimfp Hooray 90 days!!! Yes, I do think a present is is order on day 100. I may buy a trinket when I get to 30.

    I look forward to hearing what you will pick out. I am going to have to look into James Avery ring. I dont know what that is?

    Thanks for the reminder about Curious Elixir drinks!! I will get on that right now and order some.
