Kim’s Story: my first sober birthday

By Posted in Inspiring Stories

Our old friend Kim is back with another report of her sober journey, and she just had a birthday – her first sober one for a while. Read on to hear how it went!

First sober birthday

It’s my birthday on Sunday and I’ve been feeling really pissed off about the whole thing. Pissed off that I won’t be seeing my numnut mates as they will just want to get slaughtered. Pissed off that I should be having a spectacular alcohol-free day but that won’t happen with them. Pissed off that NOBODY understands what a legend I am for kicking the booze, NOBODY gets how hard I’ve worked, NOBODY is hanging out the banners and playing trumpets in my heroic alcohol-free presence. NOBODY GETS IT OR ME! 

I dragged my sorry arse to the office today planning to hang my already out of proportion bottom lip out even further for the day in a mega sulkathon. And this is what my team and my company set up for me.

Birthday present to self

I know this sobriety malarkey is about me and not what others think, but I feel so much better now!

Every year I order myself a birthday present. I have just ordered these pills make your poo full of glitter – for me this is revolutionary. I will resist the temptation to spike my son with one.

I am going to snorkel with some sharks this weekend with my son (because I hate swimming and am shit scared of sharks and need a challenge). I’m going to have afternoon tea, and I’m going to suck my bottom lip back in and put that smile right back on my chops!

Epic sulk averted!
