    Default I flexed my sober muscle! "That was easy!"

    I flexed my sober muscle last night when I went to a function at a bar which included two drink tickets ..... hmmmm.

    I did a mental CBA on them and quickly gave them away.

    The remainder of the evening did not create or bring up any urges or cravings.

    "That was easy!"

    This morning I feel much stronger! No headache no guilt, no dui. I remember everything and didn't make an *** of myself.

    Last night I flexed my SMART muscle!

    Congrats! That muscle gets stronger the more you flex it.

    What got me sober was trying to get sober. Every time I lapsed, picked up, drank, I was thoroughly beaten. I thought at those times "there is no hope for me" Yet, when I had recovered from those thoughts just a little, I thought "have another go!" It was a lot of little sparks, rather than a flame, that got me here.

    Awesome! Love your catch phrase, "I flexed my sobriety muscle!" I feel like someone should start making t-shirts of stuff like this.
