I haven't dropped into this thread in a while, it's nice to read some updates from folks and see others asking for and receiving support.
H8DWINGS- thanks for posting the link to that podcast, dudes hit the mark and it was refreshing to hear it from their perspective. Congrats on the training and hitting the 6 month milestone as well. Way to go!
ScubaTacos- that's a pretty awesome Christmas present you are giving yourself, nice work!
I know there are others that have posted as well, to each of you, nice work and keep on keeping on. The next month can be tough, as there tends to be lots of "opportunities" to test yourself. For me, waking up after a holiday party (or any day for that matter) feeling great and ready to attack the day, serves as a great reminder of why I passed on drinks the day/night before.
1/15/20 will be 2 years for me, so I guess I'm a little over 22 months. In that 22 months, I know I have faced 100's of excuses to have a drink. Problem is I wouldn't have A drink, I would have A LOT of drinks.
I'll repeat my mantra once again-
When I control my drinking, I don't enjoy it.
When I enjoy my drinking, I don't control it.
