Sober October - the results

Well... its the end of October. And I was alcohol free for 98.5% of it. 

Due to emotional complications there were a few (3 times) when a glass of wine was MUCH needed and the absolute best choice I could have made. Other than that I was completely alcohol free but I will say that my emotions were put to the test this month. 

I was under a ridiculous amount of stress regarding work. One of my best friends and her husband moved away to New Zealand and... well... The Fisherman and I ended things. 

Considering all of these factors, I think I did pretty darn good with Sober October. 

As I mentioned when I originally wrote about doing Sober October, I in no way have any problems with drinking. Its a social thing for me. Beer at trivia, wine with girlfriends, fun nights out. The whole concept was sort of a test for me to deal with my emotions with out using alcohol as an escape. I think I did pretty good.

Good for you, girly! :) I started my "sober" month two weeks ago. Still going strong! Even after being stuck in an airport (unexpectedly) for 8 hours! :)

I'm sorry to hear about your recent heartbreak :( Hugs your way! xo

You did VERY well! I quit after day three. And may I remind you that when you were going through tough times I drank beer FOR you and in front of you. You definitely win the in the willpower department.
