Delylah is gonna make it
I slipped one day early this week, but not too hard, I guess. But the good news is that I stepped up and got right back on track. I’m trying to figure out what triggered me to drink that day. Stress at work, boredom, thinking I could have just one. I can pick apart each reason I gave to myself to justify my drinking.
Boredom: That’s easy. I could have easily satisfied the boredom by doing something else. A movie, a coffee shop, shopping, anything but drinking.
Stress: Alcohol only made the stress worse. Feeling drunk, out of control, and eventually hungover is NO way to deal with stress. I feel less stress when I’m clearheaded.
Only one? Nope, not in my case. I can’t seem to stop when I start.
Lesson learned. NOT EVEN ONE….
