i’m actually excited

from my inbox:

cricket (day 6):

I just want to thank you for starting this blog and being so candid and honest with your trials, tribulations, thoughts and feelings.  This is the first time getting sober hasn’t felt like “work”.  Reading your blog helps me SO MUCH!  The thoughts you have (wolfie) are what I struggled with before and I’m sure I still will occasionally. But this is the first time I’m actually excited about going on this journey of sobriety and it’s all because of you and your blog.  I can’t thank you enough.  I’m smiling again!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!

I hope HUGE BLESSINGS just chase you down and overtake you!  😀

Day 6 of sobriety.  🙂  Thanks to your help.

Love, Cricket”

shameless commercial link. it’s my birthday today. don’t forget. i am a human who likes a big-deal-birthday but also I know that i have to make that happen for myself 🙂 you could buy me a present. in the absence of chocolate, then you doing the jumpstart class would be a good present. ha. you doing the jumpstart class, being sober, and us sharing chocolate? that would be the best.


I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • Oh Belle, Happy belated birthday! There aren’t enough good wishes in the universe to send you! Hope it was a grand birthday!
