Trigger

I knew it wasn’t going to be easy to stop drinking but I didn’t know that the triggers to drink would pop up as much as they did. They came at me for the first six months alllll the time. Like some puppet master was controlling the trigger strings, created just for me. I’d turn on some music and hear a song that took me back to a fun concert. I’d look at old pictures and see myself at a wedding with a cocktail in hand. Driving past the 100000 stores where I’d buy beer or wine. Cleaning out a closet that I’d used to clean out with a bottle in hand. Shit even trick or treating without a roadie got to me. Triggers were everywhere because I drank everywhere. Airport? Yep…drunk there. Beach? Puhlease. Parties, bbqs, gender reveals? Drunk, drunk, drunk. If I thought long enough about these fond drunken memories I’d remember: I ruined weddings, I blacked out at every concert, I embarrassed myself as a sloppy bbq guest. But in the beginning? When I couldn’t get out of my own head? I’d walk, I’d run, I’d drop and give me 30. Move a muscle, change a thought. If that failed I’d sleep. I always woke up happy to be sober. Happy Saturday, sober family! Keep it simple today.
