Alcohol free Lent Challenge


#21

Congratulation on day 5. Almost the first week done. Good job


#22

Thanks! It’s definitely getting easier now.


#23

Oh no, that’s so frustrating! I’m sure it will come soon. Hang in there :four_leaf_clover:


#24

We can do this! How’s it going?


#25

Still going strong. Going to brunch and a play this afternoon. I’m sure my friend will want a drink, but I will be ready to order something non alcoholic. I’ve also noticed if I order first and set the tone, she will abstain as well.


#26

I started my journey 3 days agonon Ash Wednesday. Lets do this!
I plan on staying sober WAY beyond Lent, though. I’m unable to casually drink like normal people, so I’m choosing life. :blush:


#27

All good here. Day 5 tomorrow :+1: :facepunch:


#28

Day 6, checking in! Snowed overnight here!


#29

Staying strong since last Wednesday. Been keeping myself busy by working a lot. Was supposed to be a huge snow storm where I’m at but it was mostly sleet and rain. Thank goodness because i don’t know how much more of this winter I can take.

Yesterday got long, I was BEYOND tempted several times over, but stayed strong! Day 5, here I come. :hugs:


#31

1st Sunday and the reading was the tempting of Christ, Amen. It’s all a glamour by the devil. AF & NF: Day 5.


#32

Day 7 = 1 week! Feeling better every day! Let’s keep this going!


#33

Im just getting off work and today is my first day off since last Tuesday. Before last tuesday on a day off for me id definitely look forward to having drinks… and am honestly thinking about it. I know i cant but today will be a temptation. Good vibes needed. Good Monday everyone.:blush:


#34

Keep strong! I go out for a run now when the wine witch starts whispering! You can do this!!!


#35

A coworker mentioned to me she was thinking @ giving up booze for Lent. I said Me, too! We’re supporting eachother and both stayed dry over the weekend. I. An’t wait until Wednesday when i can declare week 1. It will be my first sober week in 3 years! :grin:


#36

That’s amazing! Well done!


#37

Day 8. Hope you all get through this Stormy Tuesday! It’s howling here!


#38

I did it! Kept busy by painting our bedroom and taking our fur babies out and about. Feeling good today minus not sleeping well or if at all. I work NOC shift so it’s hard for me to actually have a good sleeping schedule. Anyway, finally warming up where I’m at… 35 degrees feels wonderful :rofl:
Have a great day/evening everyone.


#39

Finally some nice days, so getting out and taking walks. Yesterday by the gas station, where I bought my tobacco, today by the liquor store. I need to teach my body some new directions. LOL
