Glowing Skin?

I’m floating along doing okay. Not great, just kinda sub par. I don’t feel like drinking most of the time but I’ve had a few moments lately.

Reading other sober blogs makes me feel like I’m not doing something right. I mean everyone talks about their beautiful glowing skin and weight loss. I look in the mirror and see the same tired skin and the weight that has not fallen off like others who have quit drinking.

Maybe it’s because I didn’t drink every day. Binge drinking is a bird of a different feather. I could lose 12 pounds during a 3 day binge. I realize that was all water loss due to dehydration.

I still wake up thankful every day that I’m not in hangover hell. I’m happy that I can remember every conversation from the night before. Watching Leaving Las Vegas makes me grateful that my drinking never progressed to that level.

Today is day 140 of sobriety.
