Drinking coffee by the pool on the island of Roatan, Honduras. Not going to lie, these are the moments I REALLY miss drinking. A few years ago I would have had a mimosa in my hand and a nice buzz going already. It's 10 am. I close my eyes, take a deep breath, and I acknowledge that I am where I am today, right now, because I decided that champagne for breakfast was no longer acceptable for me.
I didn't do anything miraculous, I just made a choice.
So I went to an AA meeting on Wednesday. I just wanted to see if it was as bad as I remember it. I really miss having friends and I don't know where else to meet them!!! So it was kind of out of desperation. I really don't know where else to meet other sober people. This island is probably THE WORST place to get sober.
I live a surreal life here, where it's acceptable to drink on the job, dealing coke is talked about openly, and drunk driving is a way of life. I want to surround myself with like-minded people, people who are serious about not using and who want to take control of their life and actually live!!
