Day 99 – I’ve got 99 problems but alcohol isn’t one

Well any more that is. I literally can not believe tomorrow is day 100. I’ve been blogging for 93. It feels so surreal.

At the start of the process I remember having a discussion with the lovely and wise Ainsobriety about getting rid of the alcohol in the house. I remember her suggesting it and the cold shiver of dread running down the back of my neck. What? You mean get rid of the alcohol? Like forever?

I remember panicking at the suggestion. Forever seems like such a long time. And I suppose it is. But having no alcohol in the house no longer fills me with a panicked dread.

Today I started wrapping up a whole cupboard of beautiful drinking glasses to go in the loft. They were kindly gifted from my godmother when I moved in and have gone down her family tree. Due to the sentimental value they are going to stay in the loft for a while, but won’t be taking up precious cupboard space. Instead I’m filling the cupboard with cookery (not baking-ha) books and having a move around my kitchen. I still need to clear out my gin cupboard, but I will get to that this weekend. I’m just proud I’ve started.

In other news, I slept terribly last night and ended up on the sofa. I think its hormonal. I’d promised myself I’d cut back on the sugary stuff, but after taking BB to her injections this morning I’m on the sofa with a toblerone. At least I’m keeping the promise “be kind to myself”.

So 99 days. See you tomorrow for 100.

  1. Day 99! I know I’ve said it before, but congrats and you are such an inspiration! Taking kids to the doc is the worst … we have to go on Wed. for regular checkups and flu shots… it’s even worse now that they’re older because they saw it on the calendar so have been worried about it for two weeks :-/


    1. They’re horrible arent they. She’s just screamed herself to sleep in my arms, really feel for her. And thank you I want to go wild… I might even make myself a cuppa ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

  2. โค๏ธ you have so much going on. You might as well be all in!

    Baby shots require toblerone. Have an extra glass of water. Strive for better, not perfect.

    Your choice make the world a brighter place. Thank you.



      1. I love hearing your story and I feel like I know you,lol.
        I find blogs are really powerful. Connection is complicated enough due to covid. We need to be open to remote friendships!
