Day 100 alcohol free is coming up this Sunday(!!). It’s hard to believe I’ve made it this far. It truly feels like it was only a few weeks ago that I woke up on Day 1, nerves torched, body aching and bloated, and emotions high, full of hope for a better shot at getting sober. Yet here I am, 97 days later. Still very new to the game, but far enough along that I’m beginning to get a feeling for how my life without booze is going to look.
From where I stand, it’s looking pretty good. Not the best, not horrible. Just pretty good. And pretty good now is way better than what I ever had when I was a drinker.
This past week has been kind of a whirlwind. I started my new work schedule, which means I’m working 10 hours a day, 4 days a week. That means tomorrow, I’m off, and I get a 3-day weekend out of it. Despite the longer haul during the 4 days at work, it feels absolutely worth it. I feel very lucky to be with a company that is happy to grant me schedule flexibility like that.
And of course, I’ve somehow managed to pack my free day full of things to do – a therapist appointment bright & early, renewing my vehicle registration, going to the dentist, and then a meditation group later in the evening. Somewhere in-between those things I’ll be doing homework, as well.
That’s alright, though. These days I can hardly stand the feeling of sitting idle. I like keeping my mind active and my schedule pleasantly full 🙂
