365 Days

Well its finally here, that magic number 365. There was a time I thought this day would never come. It isn't some magic day where I'm finally cured. Its just a marker of how far I've come and how hard I've worked. I still struggle especially now dealing with a bully manager at work. Who hates me for no sane reason. Oh, how I'd love to come home after long hard day and just get **** faced. But that would be the day I'd lose, and I'm not going down without a fight I've come too far. I will say I feel the best I've felt in years, I've lost almost 20 lbs and my skin is great. So here is too the next 365 days.....

Bravo brown eyed girl!! You deserve to be sooo proud of yourself. You have accomplished what all of us short term ex-drinkers dream about.

You are right we are never cured. In fact, we will need to remain ever vigilant against the demon alcohol, especially as time goes on.

It is EVERYWHERE and society makes it seem like that is what is needed to have a good time. But we know better than that, don't we?

Getting s-faced to relieve the tension and stress that your bully manager is causing you might relieve the pain you are feeling for a few hours but then you would have to go face him/her with a terrible hangover, decreased confidence, and having to face the reality that you messed up all of your hard work over the past year for some piece of trash manager on a power trip.

Stay strong B.E.G., you are an inspiration to many!

Congratulations :)
