Well I've survived Christmas...sober! It was a great holiday this year. I had small urges now and then but overall it was fairly easy. Only once did someone directly offer me a drink because he forgot that I wasn't drinking.
Then I survived my husband's birthday at the wine and cheese restaurant. This was also not too difficult. We went early in the day with our kids. Of course being at a wine bar I did have a desire to order a glass of wine but it quickly passed. It was a good day as well.
Then yesterday I made it through yet another test. A professional football game! Of course professional sporting events are big drinking events in general, but we were sitting in a suite with a full bar, bartender and unlimited free alcohol!

The bottom line is that I continue to live my life as a sober person. There are ups and downs. I am gaining more confidence with each hurdle.
