Okay, planning for sobriety.

So, I am going to try again. Truly try. I have signed up for Annie Grace’s Alcohol Experiment and am starting on September 8th, this Friday. I have listened to a few of the videos she has put out and think I am in a different place than I have been before. This has been a LONG journey and I hope the good is about to begin and the result from all that I have been through will start showing up in a positive light in my life.

Wine doesn’t taste good anymore. It makes me sad and I am longing to be without it…but, there it has been for the past 27 years of my life so yes, this is a process. I have hope, genuine hope for myself. I have found an “IRL” friend that takes yoga with me who just celebrated her 2 year soberversary (I don’t know how to spell that) and has the same beliefs and viewpoints on recovery that I do. I met with her and shared my struggles with her on this past Monday and she gave me SO much hope. There are others that I can relate to here in Oklahoma and are willing to offer support and encouragement. I also have some special internet friends who I cherish more than anything…I am feeling like I finally have some real friends who get me and share my struggles. They are real, honest, and have amazing advice and insight into problems in my life. I am looking at things with new eyes and a new heart. A heart of compassion and love for myself, something that has been missing since I was 15.

I am starting on the 8th. I hope you will share my journey and see me experience sobriety in it’s entirety…one day at a time, feeling all the feelings and finding out what life is REALLY about!

I’m excited!

Hugs,

Christy

    1. I’m hoping this is it and just what I’ve needed. It helps to have those that are in the cyber world too, I almost feel as close to some of those contacts as I do IRL friends 😉
