90 Days

Yesterday was my 90th day of sobriety...the next meeting I attend will present me with a chip; then I won't get one 'til I reach 6mos.  I'd like to say it is getting easier, but it's not.  In fact for me this is the hardest part.  I could usually go for a couple months without drinking then I would get a craving to binge.  My son really was on my nerves yesterday and I really, really, really wanted a drink.  The only thing that kept me from drinking was knowing that I will be attending my AA meeting and I want to be honest with them in saying I've reached my 90 days.  So in that instance the program works.

I have to attend a Christmas party tonight for my husbands work...there will be plenty of alcohol there to tempt me.  Grrr, arrrgh!  I can get through it...I will immediately ask for a soda and sip that throughout the night instead of wine or any other alcoholic drink.  I'll have my hard candy with me too.  Every alcoholic says this time of year is hard to get through due to all the parties...it is true.  At least our family gatherings never have alcohol at them; that would definitely be tempting considering the stress involved with those.

All in all I am thankful for my sobriety and glad that I am a recovered alcoholic.  One day at a time!
