I have been away: away from this blog, and away from sobriety. While on holiday, I have been drinking every day, and I don’t think there has been one moment when I have felt good about it. I couldn’t even bring myself to write about it.
I am sorry if people have been worried about me, and wondered where I was. For a while, I felt out of my depth on my blog; but I don’t want to be frightened by it, I need it to help me with my journey.
I think there are going to be people who disagree with the way I am moving along my path. But I cannot design a perfect story, and I use the blog to chart my stumbling progress. And yes, I say progress, because even though I am back on Day One (tomorrow), I see a return to writing, and to trying again as some sort of progress.
I ask that you be gentle with me.
