Just a short post to focus on reaching 821 days sober.
It’s not a significant number but each significant date has passed by in the blur of hectic crazy 2020.
I work in healthcare and we’ve been as busy as hell preparing for an onslaught which has luckily not eventuated in Australia. We’re in a remarkably good place… 17 people currently in hospital. 17 people in the entire country. Wow.
Anyway my anxiety has been through the roof at times and now I have the global privilege of coming down from my adrenaline fueled 3 months.
So yep. Sober. Drinking has been the last thing on my mind. No significant temptations or cravings. I couldn’t have functioned as well as I did if I’d been drinking.
So yay for a random 821 days – and I look forward to another 821. Hopefully COVID stays just as well controlled in Australia too – although our health systems are now as ready as they’ll ever be if it does break out.
PS: For those of you who don’t know, Australia and New Zealand have a friendly sibling rivalry… So of course they’ve done even better and eliminated covid infection within their borders. (Oh well, I must admit that they do better at most things).
