If I take another drink, I’m going to die, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. I’m dead. You know, they say it’s a slippery slope. … It’s not a slippery slope. It’s from 12:00 to 6:00 on the clock and the whole face is ice. One sip, one drink, because there is no such a thing, not to an alcoholic. You have one and you’re — you’re done. I’d be done.

I’m sobbing. This hit home hard for me.

Basically exactly why I quit and also why I know I cannot drink again.

Happy New Year—52 Days Sober!

I loved scrolling through Tumblr this morning to see all of the sober celebration posts. I too drank my apple cider with pride last night. and much before the clock struck 12 I was in my warm bed. While I am exhausted from all of the holiday ballyhoo, I am not bent over the toilet or holding my head wishing for the throbbing to end—one of the many reasons I love being sober. 

2013 was a year of mammoth accomplishments, which I won’t post on FB, but feel like I can post here on Tumblr…

1. Finished MA in English Education

2. Started Ph.D in English Education

3. Started a new job teaching 8th grade ELA

4. Got engaged at Walden Pond!

5. Ran my second half-marathon in record time

I’d say it was a pretty good year considering all the mind-bending physical and mental stress that came along with the accomplishments listed above. I think I’ll take a nice long nap to start this new year off with a bang. 

Yes, Yes, Yes! These are my wishes too!

Yes, Yes, Yes! These are my wishes too!

Word.

I’m on day 47 of my sobriety and doing pretty well, all thing considered. Oh, and I got engaged on December 23rd, so yeah, I’m happy.
