Hi all; I have been sober for about 4 1/2 months. I feel very good and happy with my sobriety. I truly felt that the obsession has been lifted until yesterday. First, let me say that I was a closet drinker. I hid my drinking 90% of the time and I did not go out to drink. I drank on the way home from work (yup, in the car) and then drank while I was at home (sneeking behind my husband and kids backs). So it has been a relief not to do that anymore. Well tonight my husband is leaving on a business trip until Fri night. This is very rare for us to be apart for even a night. So…yesterday my little disease voice says, “Wow you could drink and no one would know.” I know I could hide it from the kids and avoid other people and my phone for a day or so. So…I am NOT going to drink today but I could REALLY use some support and words of encouragement to quiet the disease voice. Thanks for listening.
