Mrs D’s new book arrived on Friday, and I started reading it over the weekend. It is brilliant. I find it encouraging reading the early part of her story – she is such a Sober Legend, that I sometimes forget she must have had a Day 1 somewhere. I am constantly amazed by the longevity of some of the sober bloggers’ sobriety. I’m back on Day 1 today.
I was also listening to the most recent episode of The Bubble Hour this morning, about the Holiday season. I’m only part way through the episode, but one of the contributors described her time before she became sober as having ‘one foot in’ and ‘one foot out’. That is how I have been feeling for some time now; I want to be sober, and then I want to drink, and I haven’t yet managed to make the choice and stick to it.
But I am going to keep trying, to keep chipping away. It may seem as though I am dithering, but I am moving forward slowly.
