Yesterday I had a couple stops to make after work. One was by a liquor store. My brain instantly said “You have been doing so good, why not stop?” I drove by and didn’t stop however, I had to go back by it again to go home.
I sat in my truck and really had to ask myself Why today would I be having these urges? What do I really want right now?
Thing is I could not come up with answers to either of these questions. I really did try. I tried so hard I said to myself “What the hell Jackie, if you are thinking of something this much, it’s too complicated!” “Just drive home and you know once your home, your fine.” So I did just that. Went by the liquor store again and not going to lie, had to tell myself no again.
About half way home I felt a sense of accomplishment. I was proud of myself. I just thought I’d share that for some people no matter if your new at cutting out or back on alcohol, or old like me these moments can resurface and we can overcome them! For me whenever I’m in a good stretch a monkey wrench will get thrown in but I also see I’m getting way better at handling them! 😃I may not always win, hey I’m human and we make mistakes but I do just love winning! 🏆
