Day 1 of 30.

Today I begin a 30 day quest for sobriety that will hopefully just be propelled from there. I have new supports that I am so grateful for (you know who you are) and intend to do something….the one thing, I have never done before. That is to reach out and stay connected especially when I want a drink. Reaching out is completely out of my comfort zone but it must be done. I am too lucky to have people that actually WANT to help me. I have my week planned and will stick to it and will try and post here often. There are others struggling, always…..and if I can do this it should certainly give everyone else a tremendous amount of hope and belief that you can do it too!

Love and hugs….here comes sober Christy!!!

    1. Thank you so much! I know a lot of chronic day 1’ers (as I call myself often) may seem to be wanting sympathy or empathy….both of which I am NOT looking for! Just trying to be open, honest and real so that others can see they aren’t alone and the struggle is very, very, real!!!! Thank you for believing in me, it means more than you will ever know (unless I meet you some day)!!!! Hugs.

  7. Have you ever tried just doing one day at a time?

    1. Ah…the just for today! Yes! I have tried that but it hasn’t work for me so far. See, if I only have to worry about today that puts in my mind that tomorrow I am drinking. I can not drink for today, as long as there is tomorrow where I can drink when I’m thinking like that. It’s f’d up, I know but I need structure, schedules, and I can’t live constantly thinking of just for today (although now that I type this it goes against what I’m trying which is to be present and mindful….something to think about)!!!! What has worked for you, may I ask? I’m thinking a short term goal might be it for me, hence the 30 days, so will give it a go (but please…ANY suggestions are welcome)!!! And, if you have a thought on how to incorporate the just for today with also a longer term goal that wouldn’t give me tomorrow as an “out”, I’m welcome to any advice, suggestions, tips, anything really!!!! Thank you, and hope to hear from you soon πŸ™‚

      1. I asked a sponsor once how I could do things like go back to school for my Masters or buy a house when I was only living for today. He explained it to me like this. Even long term goals are accomplished in daily increments. A goal of buying a house may take 30 years or more if your refinance, but each day you get up and decide to make responsible decisions to stay on track. The entire day you know that you can not fulfill the goal that day, but you still have to make responsible choices to get there.

    1. Thank you so much….hope you are doing well! I have a lot of catching up to do with blogs that I am following (yours included) but hope that not drinking will free up the time I want to do that! Hugs.
