This may be boring…lol

Hi Everyone!

First I wanted to say thanks so much to all my friends that blog on here. You all continue to help me out, even though you may not even know you are! I was in a funk last week by Thursday after another long day at work, I was thinking of alcohol. My thoughts to rationalize having one went from “I’ve had a hard days work.” to  “What’s a couple going to hurt really?” Friday after work were the same thoughts.

Well for the first question on Thursday I bought myself a huge fresh baked apple fritter doughnut at an awesome bakery instead. It was delicious and that’s my perfect kind of instant gratification for a hard days work. Yum Yum Yum  For the second question….It’s going to hurt everything I have worked hard for!  My whole goal was to stop daily drinking. I wanted my brain to stop thinking of alcohol on the regular. Dry January helped so much and I’ve been going strong since. 😀

Friday after work I basically sulked all night. Just sat and watched tv and such. By after work Saturday my spirits seemed to be lifted and Sunday was a good day! I am a tad bummed at myself because I could not pull myself out of that funk Friday night but on the flip side, I did not drink to numb out that feeling.

Well onto another week! Talk to you soon everyone! 😀 😀 😀

PS~Here’s a picture of me Sunday in my favorite sweatshirt. I am a true geek for old horror movies, The Shining is one of them! Most people just think I’ve been to this particular hotel at some point and bought a sweatshirt, but a slim margin of others who see me wearing it have that kindred smile and know all about the Overlook Hotel. ( Which was only called the Overlook Hotel for the book/movie, it’s actually called The Stanley Hotel ) 86414797_10220942281137511_5157158650409648128_n

    Love the picture and your post. You and I both down in the dumps Friday but fab work not drinking to numb it. I guess some days are just going to be shitty! Sounds like your weekend picked up for you. So glad 😁

    • When I read your post Friday night I literally thought you were reading my mind! You are so right and some days I guess are just shitty. Yeah-by saturday evening I was in a happy mood that carried over into sunday. I sure hope you are feeling better and days like Friday get fewer and fewer in between. I’m sending much love to you!! 😘😘😘

    Keep going! always! I had so many ups & downs the first year and had no idea how to handle them in advance- it was always just “hang on Sloopy!” but i did get to that one year mark & beyond. As you know from my recent post, i am not perfect. I am human and things happen but i am not deterred. I continue to look here for the support and friendship i need..thanks so much for posting!

    • I love this! Thank you for posting here as well! Finding the support here on WP I know has got me to where I am right now. Everyone is so real on here and I feel I can be as well. It’s comforting. ❤

        i feel the same way. As opposed to Facebook ( or any of that) i find that no one here who is trying to look or act as if they are better than they are or have some magically wonderful life. It was one of my biggest insecurities and for a long time- i was comparing myself constantly. Here i feel at ease. I can try to inspire without having to appear “perfect”..ty for being YOU!

    Your eyes are so pretty and they match your sweatshirt in this picture! 💚❤︎ 😊
    So…. are you saying that you have successfully remained alcohol-free for all of January and two-thirds of Feb as well?!? THAT IS ROCKING!!!!!! Congrats lovely friend.
    p.s. I love hearing about this horror fetish. I never really understood horror movies (they scare the living daylights out of me) but it’s good to have this insight that it’s like a communal geeky thing. Very cute sweatshirt too. 🤗😘

    • Awwwww…thank you so much!! I think it’s the color of that sweatshirt that brings my eyes out I think. With my red hair I seem to stick to blues, greens and black colors to wear. Peach is not my color for sure. LOL! LOL! I look like I should join a circus! LOL!

      Yep, so far so good! I did decide after dry January not to make another goal, just go day by day. I was/am very happy with how my whole thinking is on alcohol now and am determined to keep on moving forward! I still have hard days but they are getting fewer and fewer in between and I am able to tell myself a big fat NO on any alcohol. 😀 I am now in control of alcohol, before it had control of me. Will I never drink again? I’m just not sure right now. I just keep chugging along!
      Oh shit, I mean chugging along like a train…..not like liquids! LOL!

      My horror movie love started as when I was a teenager I read tons of Steven King books. Then I started renting the movie if it was out and made. Then it just grew from there! 🙂 I’m happy you like my sweatshirt, I swear in the winter time sweatshirts is all I wear!

      • sobrietytree says:

        Ah ok about the horror movie love. I know many people who feel the same-ish.
        About the colours, this is just up my alley, I used to be obsessed with colour theory in fashion. We have similar colouring I think, though you’re definitely more autumn than me. Hahaha about the chugging, too funny but also, THAT IS AWESOME about taking it one day at a time. That is definitely how I got this far. I still don’t know how my future will pan out either. I can only see how this one day will pan out in terms of the fact that I will not have a boozy drink.
        xoxoxoxo hugs

      • We still need our long talked about Sobrietytree merch! 😀
