Go, shorty…

It’s my birthday today. 141 days sober, and I’m not drinking. Took the day off from work and had lunch with my partner, then some fun-time at Dave and Buster’s. Normally, I would have enjoyed at least 2 glasses of wine with lunch, since it is my birthday, after all. But not today. I’m starting another year of my life clear-headed and hopeful. This is going to be a really good year. I may even go to 7:30 spin class tonight. That’s something I never would have done when I was drinking. I would normally be 2 glasses of wine in by that time most nights. I love being sober! Here’s to me–my first sober birthday since I was in my early 20’s.

    Happy Birthday! and job well done on 141 days…that is awesome! I know what you mean about going to an exercise class or any evening event…wine always took precedence! Hope you have chocolate, cake, ice cream today in any combination!

    Happy birthday!
    I still feel that thrill of being able to go out at any time and function. Bizarre. How confined we made our lives.

    Happy birthday! I love that feeling you’re talking about, when you realize you have a whole day that would have been blurred out from early “celebratory” drinking. Here’s to a great year for you! xo
