Every day sober there is a moment in the evening when I have the certainty I will not drink. It is usually around the same time. What amazes me is the effect. Once I know I will not be drinking my whole body relaxes. My body knows the fight is over, the tension is over, until next day.
Is that what happens when you finally ‘get’ it? Will it happen one day that I will be relaxed as a general rule and only fighting from time to time? I hope so. Anyway, in my side of the world the hour has passed, I know this will be a dry Friday night. No happy, no sad, just in peace. Tomorrow will be another day.
