100 days to go!!

So when I started this journey  it started with a Day 1.  And then I cobbled together 37 days on my own.  During those early days I was lucky enough to find Soberistas and Belle and then I began to share my journey with all of you here and I became a member of Team 100.

My involvement in the online sober blogging community grew, my daily blogging continued and then I graduated from Team 100 to Team 180.  During that time my sober connections turned from virtual to real with lunch and coffee shared with 3 other fellow sober bloggers.

There were up days and down days, emotional overwhelm days and ‘meh’ days but I did not drink.  I graduated again from Team 180 to Team 365 and found more online sober communities.  Thanks to other sober bloggers I found the Booze Free Brigade on Yahoo, the ‘Being Dry’ thread on Mumsnet and my sober community extended again.  So many people all doing the same thing and supporting each other in the process.

And here I am at Day 265 and it seems only right that I now count down to day 365 when I will have achieved one whole year without booze!!  I will not falter at this point and it seems only right to count down the last 100 days in the same way that I counted up those first 100 days 🙂

So my counter at the bottom of my post will reappear so I can mark the importance of this most amazing milestone.  One I never in a million years thought I would reach.  But I’m not there yet …….

100 days to go 😉

    1. A Journey from T1 Relationships to Personal Freedom

      One of the most prevalent social phenomena in America
      today is troubled relationships. Parents are at odds with
      each other; children are at odds with their parents; children
      are bullying other children; families are in chaos; couples
      spend more time arguing than communicating with each
      other; young people are turning to a relationship with drugs
      at alarming rates; and there is no end in sight. Some have
      capitalized on the ‘pandemic’ of troubled relationships with
      reality shows; sit-coms; talk shows; court television shows;
      and movies. Troubled relationships appear to be the norm
      in society because ‘everyone’ seems to have a troubled relationship.
      The family is at the core of any society. When the
      family is sick, society cannot be well.
      This book is written to cast light upon T1 relationships.
      While troubled relationships may look similar on the surface,
      T1 relationships are unique and wreak havoc upon the lives of
      individuals and families across America. T1 relationships are a
      root cause of family dissolution and erosion of the social fabric
      of our communities. While no one talks about T1 relationships,
      adults and children are hurting.
      Discussion of T1 relationships has been the proverbial 4000 pound elephant in the room that
      no one sees or talks about. There is ample discussion on gun
      control laws; holding schools and teachers more accountable;
      and/or increased funding for more prisons. T1 relationships are
      omitted from conferences, workshops and other discussions
      on the family; domestic violence; poor academic performance
      of our children; crime; and the drug epidemic. A discussion of
      T1 relationships is virtually overlooked, until now. T1 relationships
      make significant contributions to:
      »» poor communication in the family;
      »» the inability to establish intimate
      »» difficulty establishing trust;
      »» loneliness;
      »» the growing trend toward work-a-holism to
      avoid emotional responsibility;
      »» silent guilt and shame;
      »» generalized fear and anxiety;
      »» inability to ‘fit-in’;
      »» feelings of anger/resentment; and
      »» the inability to answer the basic question,
      ‘Who am I?’
      The T1 relationship phenomenon is a factor contributing
      to depression, overeating, gambling, substance abuse challenges,
      and other public health and social problems. This
      book will help potentially millions of children and adults to
      no longer suffer in silence in all corners of our society. A rigorous
      discussion of T1 relationships begins here. You can be
      a part of this discussion if you are in a T1 relationship; if you
      are a behavioral health professional; or if you have a general
      interest in why people behave the way they do.

    1. Thanks Sharon. Need to start planning my 1 year sober-versary reward!

  2. Congrats Lucy! You have had an amazing journey and you have changed and grown and learned each day how to do this sober thing with many supportive people around you! I think that was the key for me too, the support of others carried my through. Thank you! Hugs.

    1. Thanks Maggie! Couldn’t have done it without everyone as you say 🙂
