hangover-free mornings: still cool 1292 days later


Hope you’re having a good summer so far! I just got back up north after finishing the first of two years of the RMT program in Vernon. What a crazy year. It was no joke the busiest I’ve ever been in my life and went by in the blink of an eye. How I managed to successfully complete a degree in pharmacy back in the day when I was partying most of the time is beyond me. Even if I did still drink now, I don’t know when I would have found the time to do so during this past year!

Over the summer I’m working from home, so sleeping in is an option. In almost four years, however, I haven’t been sleeping in because mornings are a good time to get out and do fun shit! Today I got up with my husband’s work alarm and left the house before he did. Yes, I felt very tired when I first woke up, but literally five minutes of yoga and coffee fixes that.

My friend Jess has been leading a group run on Wednesday mornings here in Prince Rupert and it’s the perfect thing to keep Wednesday mornings awesome while I’m away from my tribe @ November Project Kelowna. Today as five of us ran around our little town at 7 am I was so deeply thankful, still, for feeling happy and alive instead of like a booze-soaked turd.

I wonder how grateful all the cells in my body are, and every tissue and system, for saying bye-bye to alcohol. Feeling good seriously doesn’t get old. It’s been over three and a half years and the freshness does not fade. Eliminating alcohol took quite the process and I would like to enjoy this daily until the end of time.

I hope you feel really, really good today. If you don’t, and are working on that, you can do it. And let me know if you need any help.

  1. ….I woke up this morning just wanting to crawl in a hole and die. (A lot more to that story but I don’t remember most of it). Sitting here at work in an absolute fog. Just saying to my self over and over, I think I need to quit drinking. Not slow down, not find balance or moderation, or a new cake and eat it too program. The real deal. Just stop….Decided I should go check up on your blog which I have not done in months. Found this little gem.

    I am going to do it. Thank You! Have not commented before but I am a fan for the running stuff but what I really needed was the sober stuff and deep down I’ve known that. Time to put it front and center. Thanks.

  2. This is an amazing accomplishment of over 3.5 years hang-over free for you Jamie. Running up in Prince Rupert would be such an incredible experience. With the bald eagles, the ocean and the mountains. 🙂
