Still here, just been busy lately and, quite frankly, don’t have a whole lot to say or motivation to write. Sobriety is still a struggle – I feel like I’m constantly turning my thoughts away from imaginary drinking situations. I’ve never felt so conscious of how prevalent alcohol is, in media particularly. I just scrolled through my feed reader and at least one in every 10 posts (from a variety of sites) had a reference to drinking, or a cocktail recipe. I still find it a little bit triggering, but it’s impossible to avoid alcohol without hiding, and isn’t the whole point of this to crawl out from under a rock?
I’m off from work for the entire week without any plans, so I’m piling on the self-care in between a few adventures. Hopefully uninhibited sleep will help with the lack of energy. I’m looking forward to this general malaise lifting, hopefully soon.
