Happy 365 Days to Amy!
you know it all started with Amy.
Amy: “I have been reading your blog on and off for a lot of today and wanted to say thank you. I am 41 years old and have struggled with the way I drink since my mid teens. It has been a great relief to read about your success and to hear the same thoughts I’ve had over and over come from someone else’s head…. Thank you for opening yourself up and being honest about your problems with alcohol. It helps me not feel so crazy! Best, Amy”
me: “you are so welcome 😉 how sweet of you to reach out! you’re definitely not crazy. it’s just the booze that makes us think weird things, and as soon as the booze is gone our thoughts become more ‘normal’ … and the relief you’ll feel is quick in coming (thankfully). some days still suck, but resisting booze is NOTHING compared to feeling like a crazy person! I’d be happy to hear how you do as you go along 🙂 if you’d like to be pen pals, just send me a message now and then (or daily!) to report on how you’re doing, what you’re thinking, and all the genius ideas you realize as you go along. all best, Belle”
Please let’s raise a glass of tonic/chai tea/v8 juice to Amy. She’s celebrating day 365 today. AND she has been featured in Good Housekeeping magazine. AND she is rocking the sober world on her blog. Imagine what the next year will bring 🙂
