My Sober Experience

My Sober Experience

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 My First AA Meeting...

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!!
