Sober Chick

Here are the unleashed pages of a sober chick in recovery. My journey (date of sobriety) began on June 13th, 2005. For 29 years of my life I was spiritually sick. Emotinally defeated by drunken black-outs, bulimic binging and purging episodes and self-mutilation, I finally surrendered.

So sleepy but it is a sober morning ;) Happy HNT!!!


Sometimes it is difficult to wake up each day, Monday thru Friday at 5:00 am to get to work on time. But, I still have gratitude b-CUZ:

- I GET to wake up sober, mind, body and soul
- I GET to go to a wonderful job
- I GET to start a new day
- I GET to smile and laugh
- I GET to grow, even if I stinks at the time
- I GET to feel the wonderful HOT water during my morning showers . . .

These are but a few of the things I GET to do because I am sober. See more of my sober friends RIGHT HERE ;)

Ah. Now I get the nickname.

When I saw it earlier, I was thinking more in terms of attitude (sober, as in 'humorless').

The only time I am awake at 5am is if Tiptoe is at the end of my bed meowing at the top of his feline lungs OR if its Christmas morning and I am staring at hubby waiting for him to wakeup :)hehehe
Good for you for that dedication!
Happy HNT..thanks for sharing ~

I admire you for dragging yourself out of bed that early. I aim for 6 AM and still hit the snooze alarm until 6:30.
