Note from Tammy:
Hi Belle, what’s different today (Day 100) as compared to day 7? First of all, I don’t really specifically remember day 7, but I do recall the first few weeks sucked. I was obsessed with not drinking. I got pissed off like a little kid when I thought about 100 days. It seemed like forever, and with summer looming quite daunting. I had little moments of “OK, this is good” I’m not hungover, I’m a little less anxious and I can do this.
Today, 100 days into it, I am overwhelmed. In a way, it feels like a brand new me. Let’s just call it version 2.0. Support has come in many ways, and the sober blogosphere has been my rock. I’m a better me. There are many, many blessings and if I listed the top three, they would be:
1. My creativity scale has soared and opened new, better doors.
2. My mind and body are happier.
3. My relationships feel like they have more authenticity and integrity.
This “better” hasn’t been a magic pill and it’s not simply “not drinking” … it’s doing some work and then some more. On my [yoga] mat, with my words, with my head and most of all my heart. Love & hugs. Tammy
