I have been in one of my moods all day n all I want to do is drink my damn life a way!!! I have been doing good n I’m proub of myself but tonite is a hard ass nite!!! When I have always been in this mood I would just drink into I can’t remember shit!!! Yes at that time it helps!!! What y’all do when you are in ur moods???
When I’m feeling moody, I tell myself that “This too shall pass”. Feelings don’t last. Making the choice to feel my way through no matter how uncomfortable it is and reach out to someone that will tell me it will be okay…just don’t drink. Do I want back the consequences of past behavior or do I want to just scream in a pillow or cry in the shower? Tomorrow morning, do I want to wake up with a hellish hangover and full of regret and still have the problems lingering or do I want to be proud that I fought through the bullshit that happens in life? We are not immune from life’s difficulties but we’re also not alone. It’s going to be okay…just don’t drink Don’t be willing to give away your hard earned sobriety for a bad day. You know how it will turn out. You’re a fighter…keep fighting.
Go take a hot shower, make yourself some tea, and listen to some good music. @Kassie82
No I don’t want all that back in my life!!! It feels good to not wake up with hungover from hell!! I made a call to one of my bestfriends n she on way now!!
Great job @Kassie82. That’s what it’s all about. When we struggle, we reach out.
I have always been someone that stay to myself n don’t let people in my personal business!! I just really let everyone know today that I’m trying live a sober life!!! Everyone was proud of me n there tonite it’s like I’m in a fight of my life!! But I did open up tonite to her!!! But hardest thing is I came to a bar and I’m sitting outside of it when I made the call to her!!! She told me to do nothing n wait on her, she be here ASAP!! I came to this group because I can talk in here n be myself
Exactly. I think we’ve all been in a similar situation. It’s great that you tell people closest to you your truth. We don’t need to do any of this alone. This is a battle and we need all the support we can get. I’m proud of you for not giving in to “the monster” We relate to one another.
Thanks ma!! This first time I been sober this long in along ass time!!!
I get on here. Read cool posts, inspiring ones, one like your where you share how you want to drink, then i think, “okay… im not going crazy bc others feel like i do.”
i binged on chocolate last nite thou… had to have sugar. oh man. but im sober still so i just remember to always be thankful!
and btw i hope u made it past that 30 min. where u were waiting at the bar!
Yes! Thank you for your strong and inspiring thoughts. I really needed them as well.
@mindscape that y I love this group n I see I’m not alone in this fight!!! But this is best app I have on my phone, I come on here everyday n I may not talk to you guys like some of the other people that is in here but I read alot of u guys stuff n I’m telling you one thing now!! You guys helped me in more way u will never know!!! But I’m happy to say I’m still on this road to SOBER LIFE DAY 35 !!! THANKS YALL FOR BEING HERE FOR ME LAST NITE!!
I’m in the same boat today! Hope you are still holding strong
@Stephanie I’m still holding strong n I hope u are to!!! u got this too
Actually, I am that way right now. I have that craving for some whiskey
Kassie82, you are doing brilliant!! I am nearly 14 days in and also having a moody day, have been for a walk, done the ironing, watched a film, fell asleep and all without drinking, now reading this app to remind me why I stopped drinking, anything to distract, change mood etc. This too will pass is a great thought. Keep going, the sun will rise tomorrow and you will be glad you stayed strong😀
Hey Kassie I feel ya. In truth the only help so far for me is to focus on the fact that drinking only wrecks my life therfore giving it up is not a sacrifice. always easier said then done I know, but the more I tell myself im missing out on something the harder it is to fight. So I remind myself Im only “missing out” on feeling angry and trapped so that helps. Praying for you and continued success !
So much love for this
Just stay focused!! The other nite I was in a dark place n back of my mind alcohol was calling my name but the other side was telling me u got this n don’t let it take over ur life again!!! So I cryed n let it all out , y I was in my car at bar waiting on my bff to get me!! I went and got me a bottle of water and down it like I do my drinks!!! Lol
My first 15 days I was so moody!! All I was doing was crying n wanted to tell everyone around me off!!! I kind thinking I locked myself away in my room for week are two because I didn’t want no one to know what I was going through because I always let myself down when I try to be sober!!! But I’m back to myself these days but I’m happy as hell (sorry)lol
Well said Johnny99 n same to you too!!
