Day 60 (+2)

I happily celebrated 60 days a couple of days ago. And by celebrate, I mean that I forgot for most of the day, gave myself a pat on the back, and got on with it. I did do very little work that day, mostly because my coauthor just left on Wednesday and I was totally drained for about 24 hours after that.

Wednesday afternoon after I dropped her off I had a slight craving but spoiled myself rotten with cheese and crackers, salami, roasted artichokes, and dry cucumber soda. That little meal probably cost more and had more calories than a good bottle of wine 😉 but it came with way less guilt.

Someone recently said that wine cravings are like annoying pop-ups on the computer- -that’s such a perfect way to think of them…they pop up from nowhere but usually you can just close them quickly.

I’m mostly doing fine without alcohol, hence being a bit more MIA. I’m going to try to post more! I did want to do a “what I learned” post after 2 months sober so maybe I’ll work on that. Mostly, I’m just shocked that I’ve spent two months without alcohol!

Happy Saturday!!

  1. Well done! 60 days is awesome. I think it’s great that you kind of ‘forgot’ as well! It shows you are getting used to what life should be like, and getting on with it 😀 Love the pop-ups idea about cravings. I will imagine just closing them down when I get them 😀 …until I figure out how to turn on my firewall hehe. Also – dry cucumber soda?! Sounds yum!! Wish we had that here. I may have to go on a AF drinks hunt on the Internet. Xxxxx


  2. Like you, I fall away from the blogging when I am doing well. I am just slightly ahead at around 82 days. (I don’t even know how many!) I am guessing your writing has gotten a lot easier. I am going to get an office out of the house in an effort to capitalize on the anticipated brain power than might arrive any minute. Congratulations!

  3. Asobermiracle haha re brain power. I keep making plans to learn German, become a concert pianist and prove the fourth dimension but at the moment am still tripping down stairs, losing my keys and being a fool. Soon though, eh!
