First real day of vacation and it has been really good.
Got up at 6, was on the road by 6:30 and the driving was all done by11. It was all so easy.
I blog every day to keep from getting complacent about my sobriety even though I don't always talk about it explicitly. Today though it was just really obvious that sobriety is better. Without it no doubt I would have used "on vacation" as a reason to drink as much as, if not more than, usual. Which means I would have had lousy sleep and felt miserable for the drive...plus not been nearly as safe a driver, frankly.
Sober meant good sleep and an easy drive and the only thing I was when I got here was hungry. I gotta say, the whole Being Present thing is worth it.
