I’m pleased to say that 5 more bracelets were put in to the mail on Tuesday …
And i already have 5 submissions for the bubble photo.
This bit of genius came in from Shel (day 74):
I have to say that I feel a little worried/guilty that staying sober feels so normal THIS TIME. I have been uncomfortable on a few occasions mainly either worrying before the event or being at an event when everyone starts the stupid drunk conversations … GEEZE and to think that used to be me.
I am so happy to be truly living each day and truly present for the special people in my life. I do occasionally have the “maybe I could resume social drinking one day” thoughts and I laugh out loud and say “what’s the point”. If you think about it, what exactly IS the point??
I see how people get together and the first thing that is said when you walk through the door is “what can I get you to drink?” Why not “I am so happy to see you, how is everything, lets sit down and chat for a few minutes.” Now that is really connecting.
Then as the night goes on and the drinks go in the conversations become even more detached and superficial. I was honestly sitting at the last party and everyone was talking about the dog hair that ISN’T in their house because of obsessive cleaning….WHAT? This conversation held 3 other drinkers captive with head shaking, cheers, and oh yes me too’s….argh.
OK, getting off my soapbox now…I am not dropping my guard and getting cocky cuz I know what happens then, Wolfie sneaks up behind you and practically pours the drink down your throat before you know what has happened … my shield is staying in place and ready to protect my sobriety.
Talk to ya later. ~ Shel
