I know that I was drinking in response to emotions. I believe that this day, the emotional sobriety solution is an important day for me. I don’t feel like I really got answers about handling emotions but I have a heightened awareness that emotions were what were triggering me, so I am going to work on awareness, acceptance and releasing the emotions using the Sedona method. When my mom was alive, I processes emotions by talking to her. Since that time I have been on my own… holding my emotions in. I need to find a way to release emotions that is similar to telling my mom. It used to produce a real physical and mental release. I will journaling to see if that will do it!
So, plenty of emotions right now. Since I began the program the second time, I made the decision to end a long time relationship. I am moving in two days. I know it is for the best and I have been strong and taken action to find a new place, get packed and put it all together. Feeling lots of emotions. Realizing that he deliberately manipulates my emotions. Right now he is trying to be nice to manipulate me. To protect myself and to get moved out and on to my new life, I need to just stay clear of him as much as possible.
I am going to stay focused on all the reasons WHY this is my best way forward to a happy life thriving in sobriety and stay focused on of my vision of myself, thriving in sobriety in my new home.

Your Mom is with you in Spirit and probably very proud that you are making life changing decisions on your own. When you are free from alcohol, you slowly realize that you can make your own decisions; without influence from others. Good luck on your new journey. There will be challenging times ahead, but as you said, remember the “Why’s” and you will succeed.

I acknowledge that my emotions have been driving me, leading the way, for a long long time. I have been drinking in response or reaction to negative events or emotions for a long time. I guess it’s time I take the drivers seat. This should be interesting. I’ll give it my best. 23 days sober, still irritable at times, negative at times, but still believe it will get easier and that it is the right path.
