When you take a person who has been a lush all her many years of her life, to not drinking at all, it is a big deal. But, exactly one year ago today, on December 31, 2013, I took my last drink.
I gathered all the alcohol I had in my house, emptied each container into my cup and downed it until there was no more. It was not a sad goodbye because we parted on a good note. And since then, temptation does not augment my decision, whether I'm at a bar or with friends and or family who are drinking while I'm around. I even turn down drinks that people put in my hand.
Let's see how 2015 will be as I say goodbye to yet another thing that is really unnecessary for my life, even if it is enjoyable. (Not sure what yet but . . .)
Thank you Mamkat for the inspiration to write this post. To all currently reading this post, happy new year to you and yours and thank you for being a part of my world.
Peace be the journey.
