Who knew what GREAT, AMAZING people I would meet in the soberverse?

Hi, friends! I just wanted to say, thanks to all my men and women out there who have been supporting me on my sober “journey.” Yes, YOU GUYS ROCK.

I entered this “soberverse” feeling pretty scared, and alone, and completely overwhelmed by my desire to both quit drinking and keep sucking it down. I had so many conflicting thoughts and feelings surrounding the process. Now that I’m well into it (well, save for two nights, I’ve been sober since June 12th — I know, I know, but, it does count for me!)…I feel…friend-full. Befriended. Supported. And it’s because of all of YOU — people I never would have met if I hadn’t started this blog and people who I’m SO GLAD to have on my side.

Whenever I check my Reader, I see posts by all y’all, and you know what? YOU GUYS ROCK. I see so many of you making progress, falling down (or tripping) but getting back on that horse. And, that’s what it’s all about! I see so much strength, and it gives me inspiration. So, thank you all. (And, thank God(dess) for my Unicorn with Sparkly Teeth, who is pulling my water wagon tonight. I’m sure she’ll get tired soon, at which point I’ll be wanting to drink wanting to drink wanting to drink, but at least for now, she’s flashing a tooth at me.)

(Is this gratitude talking, or my third Diet Coke of the day (must stop)? Who cares…)

On that note, I’m going to go back to posting shit for sale on Craigslist. I think I’ve finally decided to END MY TENURE here as of September 30th. What’s up after that? Probably a trip “home home” to see my dad [Corn Belt state], then back to the [beautiful island where I now live]. Stoked!

Coming in a later post tonight (hopefully): another “wow” moment on the acupuncture table. (Not to worry, nothing as tiring or melodramatic as the last few posts, but still worth sharing…as it pertains to drinking.)

      Thanks! 🙂 I don’t feel very fierce today, but so it goes… Must get back on that unicorn!

    No, thank YOU. I look forward to your posts. You’re figuring out that one recovering alcoholic needs the company of one (or lots) of recovering alcoholics. That is the foundation for AA…..which is the only way THIS drunk can manage this disease!

      YES. After falling off the wagon last night, I’m realizing more and more that part of my problem with drinking/obsessing over drinking is that I don’t admit to needing help and then don’t ask for it — precisely what I think I need to do. Will blog about the falling off later, when my brain turns back on (fuck hangovers), so that my readers don’t have to “go there!” That is the only good that can come of this, as far as I can see… Thanks for reading and for being there. It HELPS.
