    I’m listening to the audio of the book. I woke up a little late today, so I listened on my way to work.
    As the action steps rolled out, I was OVERWHELMED. Instant anxiety. every ounce of me wanted a drink. Intense and heavy stuff. I imagined myself writing my letters at a bar.
    I still haven’t written a letter yet. It was a long day. But the pull for a drink after work didn’t linger for as long as usual today. 💛

    Day 4 was a hard one for me too. I spent the morning crying, but I did not drink and it passed. I still have one more letter to write and it’s the biggie. I wrote them all on day 4 in my journal but I will have to rewrite if I want to send that one to that person. I hope this day finds you better.

    Same here! I was actually thankful that I’m on steroids for a herniated disc, which means drinking is a no-no. (And I promise, NOTHING is fun about a herniated disc OR steroids) I don’t know that I would have made it otherwise.

    The worst part of this is, I can’t think of a single person that I hold a grudge against or who I hate enough to even waste a second on. I definitely need to work on the self-forgiveness part, though.

    Bet of luck to you, and I truly hope you are savoring every clear-headed moment.

    I need to work on myself. Although one letter to a coworker about a difficult work situation was helpful especially the part of putting your self in their shoes.
