My First Sober Halloween

After such a clear and wonderful Halloween, I had a relieving thought this morning as I walked down the sidewalk and noticed an empty half pint of liquor in my path. I hadn’t thought about booze all last night, so when it forced itself into my consciousness in the form of the discarded bottle, I felt sad for its owner and gratitude for myself and the sober community for choosing and reinforcing my daily commitment.

  1. Me too. For some reason, Halloween was always a great excuse to drink a lot, no matter what day of the week, which made it my kind of holiday.
    Glad to find your blog — I love the name. ; )
