For The love of shame

I wonder if non problem drinkers could ever really get the debilitating feeling of a shame-filled hangover. The kind where you almost wish you didn’t wake up to have to deal with. I had two go-to’s when it happened. 1. Act like nothing happened and, if possible, never see the people I went out with the night before again OR 2. Perseverate in my shame, guilt, and remorse and beat myself up…almost conjure up panic attacks by the force of my focus on complete humiliation. Obviously hangovers suck- anyone can attest to that. The physical part of it for me could last for three days. Three days of vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, heart palpitations, and sweating. It was the mental aspect that got me, though. I remember talking to a friend years ago about how embarrassed I was for the way I had acted. She just said, “well just don’t drink like that anymore”. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂bless her heart, she’s obviously a normie. Fact is, I would have stopped if I had known how. I would have had just two and remembered everything I did. I tried. Not very hard…but I tried. This sister can’t drink in moderation (neither can my sister @obnicole 🤪). We get a taste and get the fuck it’s faster than you can yell “fireball”. I had to change it up. No drinking at all. Hang with sober people. Ride out the triggers. Work out. Nap. Run a fucking marathon @artunwined, right???😄😊🏃‍♀️. I hope the newly sober people trust that it gets a hell of a lot better. Just hang on. Life is so beautiful on this side.
Happy Sunday, sober family. Keep it simple today.
