(wrote this as a reply to a thread as a mistake. Meant to start a new thread, sorry).
My best sober days are when I can do something different than I used to. (like go to the gym, do something fun at night, etc). Christmas is hard because it’s the same thing as every other year, minus the alcohol. Or that’s how it feels for me today.
Having a tough day.
Going to see if my little boy will come for a walk with me after dinner.
Merry Christmas everyone!
eta: no walk. It’s too cold but I am feeling better after eating and notice just how much more clued into things with my kids, which is nice.
