holidays and sobriety



ah yes, the holiday trilogy of terror approaches;

thanksgiving,
christmas,
and new year's.

let those who can, drink and be merry.
for us who cannot, think of the bright side.

less empty calories, being present, remembering
the entire holiday and waking refreshed the
following day.

sure it's normal to reminisce about a fine wine,
cordial or mixed drink, but also remember the
ultimate outcome is different than it was in
social drinking days.

as a former daily drinker, holidays are not a
time of added temptation.
the only requirement for me to drink in
the past, was a pulse!

thankfully, the envy i used to feel, when
watching folks imbibe, has turned to curious
observation; i actually enjoy watching the
various stages of the drinking process.

more often than not, i am grateful it's
not me, slurring, shouting or napping
during the course of the festivities.

It is amusing isn't it...I often sit back and wonder what the allure in was for me.

Have a wonderous, peaceful Thanksgiving dear friend. (Hugs)Indigo
