So, this will be my 1st of 30 days of blogging (hopefully I won’t miss or skip a day)! Yesterday was a total meltdown and am seriously considering rehab if this doesn’t stick once and for all.
The Podcast I listened to today was the Bubble Hour…lots recommend it, but I’m not sure I’m loving it as it seems a lot like AA where you hear peoples stories of sadness and despair, but maybe it was just the ones I listened to! I’ll give it another go before making a decision and am going to stay open to anything.
It was the April 7th, 2013 Episode and what I did get from it was that I have to “Keep your eyes on your own paper”, not trying to just copy what others are doing and I liked that idea. I am doing this for me and for me alone and what my husband does….well, that’s his thing and not mine.
So a podcast I do really like is Recovery Elevator and today I heard this: “Do small attainable things on a daily basis”. So today, I don’t drink. That is my small attainable thing!
Love to all 🙂

Have you been to AA? I rarely hear a story of sadness or despair there. Instead, I hear of freedom and joy and a renewed zest for life.
An escape from the sadness and despair of addiction.
I don’t go to AA a lot, but the stories are the one thing that draws me in.
I’m cheering you on! You can do this. It is so worth it.
I’m on a recent bubble hour, but I was also on an old one from May 2014. There are lots of amazing episodes. Keep listening!
No matter what your head says, just don’t drink. 30 days can be done. I’ll be cheering for you

Thinking of you, RFW, as you struggle through this. Just try to get to even 10 days and let us know how you are feeling then. I promise you will begin to feel different. Baby steps.

Thank you…baby steps is right!!! At 10 days, it will be my youngest son’s 18th birthday! I can do this and thank you for the support and encouragement!!
Still watching out for you! You can do this. Aim for 30. You owe it to yourself to not drink for 30 days. Just think, you get a break from thinking about drinking because it’s not a part of your life for a bit.
Oh, thank you Stella! I think I can do this now 🙂
