I’m still here and still sober but I have found it extremely difficult to post or even read any blogs since the kids broke up for their summer holidays. Routines are well and truly out the window. At first, I loved the freedom of the holidays and not thinking too much about the Soberverse or my blog. However, over the past few days I have missed it and I think I need it. I feel on edge sometimes. I don’t want to drink and I’m not going to, but I feel off balance.
When I feel a craving or I just want to treat myself I will eat lots of chocolate and drink my cranberry, lime & soda. I will also have an early night or watch a movie. However, I guess a more maintenance part of my sober toolbox was blogging and reading blogs. Plus, listening to the Bubble Hour Podcast maybe once or twice a week. I never felt like I had to do this, I just enjoyed it and it kept me in the here and now. It kept me sane!
I will have to carve out more time during these holidays to blog and read/listen more. This Soberverse is important to my recovery. It helps me grow mentally and emotionally. It keeps me balanced and it prevents the cravings and self-doubt.
I feel more at peace just writing this out.
Right, off to check out some other blogs, I’ve got a lot to catch up on! x
