Not Feeling it

I'm sorry I'm updating so late today. I just don't feel like sharing
today. I'm really uncomfortable right now. I feel a bit like I'm
crawling out of my skin. Which sucks! The good news is I no longer
think about drinking over it. (smoking maybe, but not drinking) It's
crazy, I almost never think of drinking. That's what I mean when I say
it gets better. 2 1/2 years ago alcohol consumed my mind, body and
spirit. It was all I could think about. And today drinking sounds like
nothing but a stupid idea.

If you're just starting your journey hold on, don't give up and it
WILL get better!

    Speaking of hope, your posts give me hope that I can get through this and things will fall into place somehow -

    You are brave for sharing your life with us -

  2. Thanks, Emily. You do give me hope. I am making progress, with some days easier than others. Sorry you are having a hard time -- wish I could pay you back somehow by giving you a shoulder to lean on or an ear willing to listen. I'll pray for you.

  3. Hang in there is a new day girl! Take a deep breath and put a smile on that gorgeous face! Love ya! ....oh, almost forgot...9 MONTHS SOBER TODAY...never imagined it to do some more step 4 work...have a wonderful, blessed day peeps!

  4. A quote by the Dali Lama:

    To the extent that suffering awakens our empathy and causes us to connect with others it can serve as a basis of compassion and love.

    Physically exhausting activity and or a gentle yoga session does wonders for ones mental state.

  5. Annette, YEAH!! Momma of 3, I think you have one today too!!!

    Emily, you always give us hope, sending lots of hope back to you!!!

  6. Thank you for who are honest about it getting better. That simmple quote I say to myself everyday. It get's better .. Well, because you Emily have spoken so clearly about the journey to helath I have gone just one more day. Wow in time I have the hope of not thinking about alcohol. That is my lifechanging hope.

  7. Hi Emily,
    I feel really bad that you are having a crappy time right now. It is your honesty and courage to put your life out there for us to see, that has helped alot of us to come to terms with our drinking and shitty ass attitude on life. Even though we all want to know we are not alone please know that you are not alone and that you are in my prayers and I am sure many others too. Thank you so much for your courage and honesty and you being you.
    Take care.
