My Mood: woahhhh a success

Default woahhhh a success

Hi All,
I've never posted in this forum before because I was shy and uncertain if I was really going to be able to/worthy of this sobriety thing. but I've been sober from alcohol for two months and on this path with a few slips for almost 6 months now. I have to admit that I was a little disappointed that after 30 days I didn't suddenly transform into a gorgeous, wealthy superhero with perfect skin and no mental health issues who wakes up at 6am to do yoga with orphan dolphins
BUT
something major just happened:
I was at an ultra weird family xmas and because I live far away I had over-committed on the amount of time I would spend with them. Things were getting hard and I was feeling myself slip into a very bad place. Normally I would swallow that feeling with a lot of festive drinks but instead I said:
I can't stay here

And found another place to stay for the remaining time and will see family when I feel able.
WHAT?!?!?
Maybe I am a glowing dolphin saving supermodel after all.

AWESOME, Plaid Person! Simply, totally awesome. Congratulations. And the very best proof of the value of what you did was the way it made you feel inside. Many many hugs.

Way to go. It's especially great that you remained sober through a potentially triggering family gathering. Keep up the good work.
