Day 20 ~ January 30th

Another weekend alcohol and hangover free! This morning, I attended the women's AA group with about 20 other ladies. The speaker was 30 years alcohol free!!! SO amazing and her testimony was powerful. She talked about how alcohol made her immoral and all inhibitions were thrown out the window when she was drunk. It only took the first sip of alcohol then the rest was history. Once she was done sharing her story, the floor was open for a discussion. There was a moment of silence, but after, every single woman in the room shared their story on how alcohol did the same to them, including myself.

Over the years, I have made some terrible, TERRIBLE decisions because of my problem with alcohol. I did immoral things...things I NEVER would have done sober. My self esteem was so low that I used alcohol to solve all my problems, but in the end, it was creating more problems...A LOT more. I just finished the book, Sober Diaries by Claire Pooley which I highly recommend. I can SO relate to her journey and found strength in her book. I lost many years to alcohol but now, I'm finally realizing that I can NOT allow that to happen anymore. This is going to be a fight, but one I am preparing for daily...from the moment I get up until my head hits the pillow, I am doing something to help my sobriety. I will continue to do everything in my power to stay alcohol free as I know this is the best thing for me and my life. One day, one minute at a time.
