Although, I’m an alcoholic, the past year has seen me go days and weeks at a time without drinking. The reason is because I work away from home on somewhat isolated and remote locations with no access to beer. So, my drinking is a problem when I am home. Typically, over the past year, I get home and go to dinner and the drinking begins and pretty much doesn’t end until I go back to work. My last time home seemed easier, but this time seems a little more difficult.
This past week at work was challenging. I didn’t sleep much, there were problems with operations and I was pushed to some limits that made life a little tough. I had been craving beer quite a bit over the past few days – thankfully, I could not get any. But I’m going home tonight, finally, and it’ll be fairly late. I’m sure I’ll be able to avoid it today, but tomorrow is going to be a little more difficult. My intention is to hit a meeting the first opportunity I get, but the craving is pretty high today. I’ll also be calling my sponsor in a couple of hours, as I pack and prepare to drive home.
Today, my thoughts are sporadic, crazy and may even yield a few more posts as I try and keep my mind busy.
24th, 24-hour period…
