Hope your having a great sober day!
In my early days of sobriety as soon as 4:00 on Friday hit I wanted a drink. I was a binge drinker, usually weekends. I thankfully did not drink every day. When the weekend came it was time to party!!
Something that I did to distract from wanting to drink and deal with the urge was to go shopping, or play my favourite music really loud and sing and dance.
Think of things that make you happy, push yourself to do the things you love other than drinking. Find a quiet place to read, meditate or visit friends that know what you are battling with.
This is Being Me Sober.

I'm finally sober! My life up until I really got sober was in one word, chaotic! I didn't know what stability was. To top off my mess of a childhood, I went straight into a marriage with more abuse and alcoholism. But, what I have today is who I am, who I've become, I am with an amazing (new) husband, we have 4 kids and our fur-baby.
It has not been an easy road but I can say it was worth every fight and tear it took to get me here.
Sharing my journey with you and my past is not to display it all over the place but to help someone relate to what has happened and where my mind has been while I was drinking and where it is today. Its to give insight to those suffering that if you just keep fighting you can really have the best life you were meant to have.
Let's do this!
