Last day at work

My last day at work isn't until Wednesday, so I haven't had to face the pressure of having a 'few' farewell drinks yet - I've just been trying to plan ahead (ie plan not to!) because until saying no becomes second nature, I find it easier to follow a course of action I've rehearsed.

I'm feeling quite strong at the moment (and I know pride comes before a fall, so I'm careful not to be proud of myself!) and I'm not sure why. It could be because now I know I'm leaving my awful job for a new one, I don't feel so miserable. It could be because I'm enjoying feeling mentally alert right to the end of the day. It could be because it's so nice not to wake up in a sweat in the night with a raging thirst and a horrible taste in my mouth. Whatever the reason, I'm very grateful.

Hey, thinking about you, and sending up a prayer that you'll keep your resolve strong and get through this day without feeling a need, or even a real desire to have a drink. YOU CAN DO THIS!!! Do you realize there are 4 of us within a month of one another, in terms of how long we've been sober now? There's you, me, Jonathan, and Redhead Gal. We're all in this together, girlfriend!
