JULY 6, 2020 - DAY 6
Updated: Jul 13, 2020
I decided to take the next 2 days off work so I can just focus on ME. My sobriety. That way, when I head back to work, I can be fortified with 1 week under my belt.
So far, it's been remarkable. Which, I guess is kind of scary. I am on the 'this aint so bad" train. However, I haven't really had a challenging event. I have 2 'wine night' phone calls with friends tonight. It won't be a challenge hanging out with my tea or whatever, but I guess I want to work on what I will say to whom. My best friend will find out everything, all the details when I talk to her tonight. We are very close and I know she will be so supportive and possibly curious herself. My other 2 friends will be supportive - one (I think) is a well-controlled drinker, the other is an over-drinker like me and is still stuck in the "I can moderate anytime I chose" mode. So I suspect a lot of justification from her. Hmmmm what if I don't say anything at all? They will notice my teacup, or not if I put my drink in a glass. Maybe I will continue to try something new and stay private about my drinking. Keep my thoughts to myself until I am more comfortable with it all. I think I am on to something!
