Today's Dryuary Post ~ Day 20, In Anxious Times

Wow summer1 I was so excited to read your post today! Following along with you and remembering your "accidental 30" this was so powerful. I especially liked:

"But this time, I was able to tolerate that anxiety without turning to alcohol to fix things. I kept the car filled with gas, and got some emergency supplies together, and I just let the anxiety sit there. Those thoughts of having a drink to “take the edge off” popped up from time to time, but this year, somehow it just felt easier than ever before to just acknowledge those thoughts and let them go. Somewhere along the way, I had lost my faith in alcohol’s ability to take the edge off."

Thank you for sharing your experience and this powerful post. You are a "success story" and an inspiration to me!
