JD. Your words always make me feel all warm and fuzzy. Thank you for checking in and for the amazing confidence boost.
Yesterday went really really well. Tons of people, tons of fun, tons or clean up but made it through. I did get a bit buzzed and in that state did have cravings for oxy but they left me pretty quickly. Honestly didn't even have time to think about cravings. It was a long day and I fully expected to be falling off my feet by the time I cleaned everything up at 10 pm but not so. My buddy stayed over and we hung out til 1 am playing gta and me improvising on my keyboard (I like to write music).
When I got to bed at 1 am I couldn't fall asleep until 2:30 (not good when you have three boys to wake up to). Lucky for me my wife was amazingly kind and let me sleep in while her and my mother in law took care of the morning activities.
I woke up at 10 am which is a first for me this past year. A bit hungover in the morning but not much. I'v learned my limit a while back (too bad same didn't apply with opiates. There was no fucking limit).
Day 8 had been a good day. Still dealing with cleanup and organizing all the presents but overall feel ok. I go back to work tomorrow. I'm certainly proud of this highly productive week. After years of struggling I can see the end and it's glorious.
I hope you're all doing well. Much love and hugs.
