Happy sober Sunday Funday! What’s going on this week in your sober life? I am not traveling and looking forward to working out more than usual in my home gym. And I am not drinking.

Wasn't invited to my nieces 1st birthday in 3 weeks. We were over to be with the niece all quarantine and even stopped doing things we enjoy to avoid raising the risks. I.e.stopped visiting family that were working in hospitals, stopped going to the gym.
They are having a bday photoshoot for his cake smash(the mom of in-law is taking the photos). They acted like they didn't know where it is when I asked if we were welcome to join- after seeing the decor. We haven't had any arguments. I'm pretty butt hurt.

I quit drinking at the first of the year because I was drinking too much as a way to cope with Covid. 99.9% of the time, I’m glad I quit drinking. And then there are those nights when I just want a glass of something to take the edge off, which makes me think alcohol was more of a coping mechanism than I thought and it’s probably a good thing I’m not drinking. I don’t even like wine very much, but I miss that low level buzz that makes everything a little less loud.

I really do want to get sober. The biggest thing holding me back is knowing I'd have to leave my career and probably the hospitality industry completely unless I could find a non-alcoholic restaurant that needs a bartender 🤦🏼‍♀️. It scares me that I'll have to navigate getting sober and finding a new job at the same time. I have no degree, so I feel like I'm SOL if I do and if I don't basically.

I know it takes longer to rebuild trust than it did to destroy it, but it’s just tough and a shitty way to start the weekend.
