Day 15 has been a different day for me, completely different. I awoke feeling slightly off kilter and still a bit tired and uncertain about yesterday but managed to drag myself out of bed and get on with housecleaning part 97. It's amazing how little deep cleaning gets done when you are neck deep in daily drinking. Anyway my house is cleaner than it has been in years and I on the other hand am proud but tireder than I have been in years.
My friend and I have spoken non stop about not drinking and she seems as happy to talk about her time as I am mine, plus we feel that shared understanding that you CANNOT have unless you have been there. I read her my post from yesterday and told her my big elaborate lie I had planned but ended up not needing. I am back in the 'happy I am not drinking groove' again.
Thank you for all the really lovely and supportive comments and apologies for not replying to them. I read them out to my friend and she teamed up at how much support I am getting but was surprised at how many people were online blogging and reading about this. She feels there is a sea change coming as people are staring to pay attention to their drinking but also so many propel are trying to cut back or stop. I forgot to mention when I was in the throes of fighting the demon drink yesterday I had to go get more Becks Blue and you know what?.... it was nearly ALL gone. Who knew? I thought it was just me but apparently not.
It is about 3 hours past my bed time in my already exhausted state, so I will bid thee a fond farewell tonight. Feeling so much better and I am in day 16 now.
