Merry Christmas to you all!
I hope you are all enjoying a sober Christmas. If not, maybe tomorrow will be the day you find your final day one. It is a journey and it doesn’t always go in a straight line! Just keep moving in the right direction.
I had a lovely Christmas morning. Kids. Presents. Coffee. English breakfast. The turkey is in the oven and it is just my hubby and kids for the day. Quiet and beautiful. Time to figure out how to charge the gopro camera.
This is my second sober Christmas. Last year I was 25 days in and about as cranky, paranoid and anxious as you could imagine. My hubby didn’t quit until Dec 28, so he was drinking, but pissed at the world. It was not a fun day. But even with all that it was better than it would have been had I drank. I have had enough boozy and weepy Christmases for a lifetime!
This year we are both sober. Life is much calmer. We went out for Christmas Eve McDonald’s last night. And we watched the Grumpy Cat Christmas special. Everyone is happier. Especially me.
Thank you all for reading and commenting. Your stories help me. A lot. It is through our shared experiences that we see we are really not that different.
