    The past three days have been challenging regarding work and my relationship with my daughter. I am able to recognize negative emotions when they’ve emerged and have thought about having a glass of wine in the evening, but didn’t allow myself to dwell on that thought and came home, did my chapter/action steps, had dinner, watched a favorite TV cooking show while I sipped on my herbal tea. I am really trying to apply the 4 A’s (aware, accept, analyze, & align), and it does help. But I can tell that my “old me” is trying its hardest to keep control, but I know I don’t want or need it and am looking forward to rewarding myself somehow when I complete the 30-day SS on Monday. 🙂 I am pleasantly surprised that I have had 3-4 bottles of wine in my pantry and even one in the fridge and haven’t even been tempted to pour myself a glass. I even opened a small can of champagne I had in the fridge earlier on in the 30 days and used it to make a reduction sauce. Didn’t use it all in the sauce so I poured the rest down the drain. That would not have happened before starting the 30-day Sobriety Solution. I still have a lot to work through, though, especially regarding forgiveness and healing relationships and establishing new relationships as well. But I feel like I have to tools and the inner resolve and strength to forge ahead and let my new me shine. 🙂

    Cant recommend having that liquor in the house. Why dont you give it to a bum at the red light?

    As far as releasing negative emotions, Give the Sedona Method a try. It was recommended in 30DSS

    Its a book on Amazon. The Sedona Method: Your Key to Lasting Happiness, Success, Peace and Emotional Well-Being

    You can get it for $4 used. If Jack Canfield recommends it I think it must be good. And the reviews are almost all positive. Many people say it fixed their life entirely. I just started to read it, looks really good. I have social anxiety and I think this can help me erase the bad feelings so that I will be comfortable to make new friends and to approach girls and ask them to dance
