Day 232

Vacation Day.

One of the great things about being a sober person is waking up ready to go....and "go" I went before it was even daylight. Got caught in terrible weather the last hour of the drive but I stayed calm, cool and collected because that's another good thing about sobriety: better emotional control.

I admit though that toward the end of that last hour the idle thought "wow, I need a drink after -this-" popped up but it was quickly replaced with "no I don't; that's crazy" and "-not- drinking is how you are able to be dealing with this so well."

Had good company and good food instead. Nothing is ever really improved by alcohol.


  1. I hope you have a lovely vacation and get rested up and refreshed. I admire you being able to wake up and jump out of bed, if left to my own devices I wake up around 8:30-10 am and still feel like I am emerging from the depths of sleep. Gosh I wish I felt energy like others.

    1. Thanks! :) Some people just aren't morning people and that is totally okay.
