I don’t know whether it’s that I’m stressed and I won’t reach for a bottle or that I’m trying to immerse myself in the current project, but this week feels different. More difficult.
I’ve thought about this over the last week.
I started drafting on Thursday.
This week I’m fully invested in the project after doing the outline, character sketching, and all the other stuff it entails.
So, I’ve been sober for 1 month 25 days.
This is a full time thing. I don’t see myself drinking again.
I may bartend, but I’ll never drink alcohol again.
I used it as a crutch to deal with stress and life for so long it’s difficult to manage things without it.
Though I’m trying.
