election



choosing not to drink!  I am so concerned for this great nation of ours with Obama as president.  I was angry at our blind and deaf citizens who refuse to be aware.  HOWEVER, I did not drink although I wanted to!  Nobody should have to go through a marital separation and such a horrible election in the same week.

Loneliness



this week has seen me tortured by a betrayal of trust of gargantuan proportions.  there were three distinct times when i really wanted to drink.  i got through it by (1) calling my daughters and (2) getting busy with something!

i'm tremendously happy i was able to get through such a tough time without drinking.  sometimes loneliness is the worst.

sober



The temptation to drink is fading and that feels wonderful.  I keep the subliminal hypnosis CD playing when I'm driving around and working, so I get the positive messages all the time.  So I now I hear myself saying those positive things to myself!  Things are NOT better in my marriage, however.  I do have hope, though.  Perhaps the longer I am sober, the better they will be.... once he believes that it's for real and for good.

not drinking



I really wanted to drink today.  I was surprised by what prompted it - driving home from errands, I began to dwell on a very small incident with my hubby.  Next thing I knew, I was imagining arriving home and having a drink!  So I called my lovely daughter instead and talked to her about my thoughts.  She gave me such great support, I was able to put it entirely out of my mind before I got home.
