I feel that it is important that you get to know the "real" me. Yes, I am a woman in recovery which is a huge part of my life, but not my whole life.
So with that being said every other Friday is girls night out. All of our kids are with their Dads. We decided long ago that no matter what, we would do girls night out twice a month... here are the reasons for that....It helps us never get completely wrapped up in a man again, it is the best therapy in town and we have all been in that place where we let all of our friendships go and feel completely alone. So I think girls night out ROCKS!
Last night was special as we turned GNO into date night. John and I (John is my boyfriend best friend guy. We have been off and on again for 4 years. We are off right now, but when it comes to checking out a new man for Tams he's the best guy for the job:) went with Tami and her new man to DJ's to get to know him. So here's what we thought um...GREAT GUY! He treats her like an angel, is super down to earth and opened the door for her. Eric we like you! John says "We love you man." Go Tami...We are soooo happy for you!
Yes, we go the bar. The same bar I drank in ( the bartenders know me and care about me, they are very happy I am sober as I was a huge pain in their ass when I was drinking:) Some people in recovery can never go to bars again. If you are one of them don't! I did not go into a bar for about the first year of my sobriety. But, if I am spiritually fit I am all good.
