A is for Alcohol

That devious, seductive, carefree, lying SOB. The one that tempts you over and over to drink, “It’s ok, everyone does it!” The one who swears that you won’t get hurt, neglecting, of course, to mention what it does to your body, your brain, your life…

I’ve been fighting that SOB for about 15 years, and I’m tired. Bone-weary. SO over drinking and squabbling and draining my bank account, and oh, so many other things.

So here I am. Hoping that writing daily for the month will keep me focused and accountable and not. freaking. drinking. ever. again.

I use an app on my phone for the Mystic Mondays tarot deck, and this is today’s. Damn!

And today’s date adds up to 17, which then adds up to 8. These are the cards from the SpiritSong deck:

Pretty cool, right? The hope and healing of the swan/Star, and overcoming the demons inside of the elephant/Strength card. Great combo.

OH! I made a “wake” (aka collection) of a few things that are in my sobriety toolbox; you can check it out here. I’ll probably add things to it as the month goes on.

Thanks for being here!!

Much love,

Pip 🙂

    Let “ever again” take care of itself. You hold the power over Right Now. Right Now you can marshal your strength and energy and stand strong against the siren song of alcohol. (Or whatever is battling you for control of your spirit) Right Now. Ever again can be a scary thought. That’s not your job to worry about. You do the Right Now and the “ever again” will take care of itself. *Hugs*
