Yes I am...

Feeling pleasurable satisfaction over an act, possession, quality, or relationship by which one measures one's stature or self-worth

Yesterday while talking with a coworker I was telling her how long it had been since I quit drinking. I said, "It's nearly 11 months since I have had an alcoholic drink of any kind. One more month and it will be a whole year! NEVER...NEVER in my entire life, did I ever think I would be saying that! NEVER!" My coworker looked at me with a big smile and said, "That is wonderful! You are pretty happy about this aren't you Lisa? And you don't even miss it, do you?" I looked at her and said, "No I really don't! And Yes, I am very happy....VERY HAPPY!"

I am very proud of my action and my move to become AF and to stick with it no matter the obstacles that have stood in my way.
Today I go out with my head held just a little bit higher....yet not too high. For I have a long way to go and each day is a struggle to reach this goal of mine. I will never lay down my guard, I will always be aware of this devil just waiting amongst the crowd to hop on my back when I am down.

Today I am proud!

    It's funny sometimes how we have to work just as hard to be proud of our acheivements as we do to be happy.

    This is an amazing and brave journey you are on! Not everyone can comprehend how difficult, but only thinking about how hard it was for me to stop smoking...and how hard it is ALWAYS for me to stay away from overeating and eating the wrong foods that are literally adding up to an early death, I can only relate a tiny bit.

    Keep being strong. Keep being brave. And keep being proud!!!
