Independence Day 2017

Happy Independence Day 

I am happily feeling independence from alcohol & especially the grip it had on me at this house I’m at!

I’m happy to report that this is day 4 at the up north house sober 😊👌🏾💪🏾
My crazy sister arrived yesterday, armed with wine coolers & captain Morgan
I wasn’t tempted & instead feel like I hit many milestones yesterday 🤛🏼🙌🏻

~ My first anniversary of my mom’s passing (sober & fully aware)
~ First Euchre game EVER (sober 🙄🙄 – I still had to ask frequently what the trump was – but not as frequently as usual !)
~ First time staying up late (3:00am) to play cards without the crutch of alcohol)

I had a talk to my 14 year old son a couple months back about my drinking. He said he thought I was doing good but the real test would be up north with his aunt – because usually we get so drunk & crazy. I passed that test last night 😊😊👌🏾💪🏾

I was tempted for a minute as we sat down to play cards & I knew there was liquor in the freezer – but it was a fleeting thought & I knew that that WASN’T what I really wanted.
I may have over snacked last night but am OK with it 💯 – playing cards without drinking was huge & I did it 😊😊

Happy 4th everyone! Wishing you all sober thoughts of joy 💜💜
