Friday was the one day I could drink "guilt free." I didn't have anywhere I had to be and I could sleep in the next morning. The other 6 days of the week made me suspect I was an alcoholic but on Friday I thought it perfectly normal to relax with a little (or more) alcohol after work. I had a little wisp of nostalgia today. Instead of sleeping in tomorrow I will be up at 4 am or so saying prayers over a candle to my Higher Power. Later in the day I'll go to an AA meeting. I'll also do a lot of other stuff that was pure torture when hungover. Weekends are much more productive now. I'm sure if I were still drinking I wouldn't have the time/energy to study for a big certification exam I have coming up. I haven't found anything yet that quite replaces the feeling and lets me relax (well, except xanax and I can't have that anymore either). Anyhow, I was just feeling a little nostaligic about Fridays and wanted to post.
