Some lovely comments on my blog lately!

I just wanted to say, thanks, friends! I know I haven’t replied to some of them, but I definitely have read them all through and through–and I’m sure you do have some idea, but it’s hard to imagine that you have any idea HOW MUCH they mean to me and support me. I still need it; I think about drinking every day. Doesn’t mean I really want to, or even sort of want to. The support helps.

I’ll update in the next day or so, as I made it to Miami for my “girl” (it would be “girls’,” but there’s just one of me) weekend. I had thought that I might drink–I’m on my own, who would know? BUT, after breezing in and out of two stores–and past many a shelf of good, cheap wine–NAH. It’s just not something I do, am doing. It’s just not my habit.

And, it was EASY to say that to myself, and move on with nary a twinge. Well, maybe one or two, way, deep down.

Yay, me! The practice of refusing to drink, day in and day out, DOES MAKE IT EASIER. It gets easier, and keeps getting easier. For all of you out there who commented and are just starting, it gets better. It really does.

I’ll be charging around on my unicorn this weekend, so if you don’t hear from me until next week, you know why! Much gratitude and love, friends. Go, us! We are superstars. πŸ™‚

    Ha ha! What a lovely post, full of optimism. Yes – it does get easier that’s for sure. Pangs still hit and require some resistance, but they get further and further in between and the resisting gets easier……. Go us! xxx

    It didn’t take me long to shift from thinking about drinking every day to thinking about recovery every day. Big difference!

    Look forward in hearing from you hear next week!

    Damnity. For some reason your posts sometimes don’t turn up in my reader so I don’t realise I’ve missed them until I specifically go hunting. Odd. Anyway, UNICORNS WITH GIANT BLAZING GLITTER BALLS ON FIRE oh my I am excited to celebrate your six months with you so very, very soon now. xx

      Thanks, Lilly! Yes, 6 months in less than 30 days… I’ve really not been posting much, and sometimes my posts come across as maybe a bit too glittery than I feel. Lately, I’ve been wanting to throw in the towel, for a few reasons. It just doesn’t seem worth it sometimes. Anyway, not going to, but feel like it. Thanks! I hope you are staying strong, too! WE GOT THIS. πŸ™‚
