Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Since I am posting this, I guess I will now be held accountable, I have started "The 21-day fix." It is a work-out, (and I am not going to say the word "diet") portion program. I am currently on day 3. It was hard enought to stop drinking, then of course with that I started eating. But my husband, being the loving man he is, would rather have me put on a few punds from food than die from alcohol. So it is now time for me to lose some of that weight. I am really exicted. Really sore, but really excited. But like the above quote says, nothing worth having comes easy. It'n not just going to happen, I have to work at it. Same with anything in my life. With my children, they didn't magically show up on a fluffy pillow. I was in labor for hours for them babies. With sobriety , I have to work at it, go to meetings, get involved, work the steps, meet with my sponsor. If you want something bad enough, you will do what you have to do to get it. We did it with drugs and alcohol. We should do it with the good things now too. That's all I got for today. Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
