Letting Go of a Toxic Friend

January 2021


First you take a drink.

Then the drink takes a drink.

Then the drink takes you.

That time I was stuck in the cycle and hubby dumped out my wine. He hated when I drank because I would disappear.



One is too many and one thousand isn’t enough.

Once you take the first one, it takes over. At this point, I’m legitimately terrified of taking a drink and hope that I always feel this way.


One Day at a Time. Don’t think about the birthday or vacation coming up, or how you will navigate summer fun without a drink. The only thing you need to think about it today, or even this moment.

Thinking of future events can be mega overwhelming, counterproductive and sabotaging. Really, for real, don’t worry about tomorrow. Don’t give the thought of it any energy.

Learning in Progress, February 2017

That’s all! Day 662, Sunday and despite Covid restrictions, work turmoil and a whole lot of drama seeming to be everywhere, I feel that I’m holding it together okay.

I am so utterly grateful that I have my drinking under control during this time. I can’t imagine the stress and anxiety that would be piled on top of an already stressful time period.

Much love people, don’t forget the self love and to take things One Day at a Time 💖
