Checking in.
A little over a week before I hit the year milestone. On top of that there is a huge snowstorm in my area. So I’m for all intents and purposes snowed in. Which has lead me to mindful reflection of how far I have come and refocused my sights on my goals. Both short term and long term. Now as long as cabin fever doesn’t set in I should be good hahahaahaha

Side note: I highly recommend picking up the book “can’t hurt me” by David Goggins.

In case you haven’t heard it today:
I LOVE YOU & YOURE AWESOME

Checking in at day 4 and I know exactly how you feel! I don’t know who I am without drinking. Now is the time for me to figure it out!!! I’ve been feeling so out of it today but I’m sure that’s normal for so early on. I can’t wait to go to a meeting tonight! :slight_smile: happy sober Thursday everyone! :honeybee::honeybee::honeybee:

You don’t have to know who you are without booze yet. All you need to know is that you are better without the booze.


#39059

Oh wow that’s damn true!! :star_struck: thank you!!!

37 days and counting. It’s crazy to me how I don’t want to drink. But seriously isn’t losing weight supposed to be one of the benefits of not drinking? That’s a rhetorical question. I am low carb, low sugar…what’s the deal yo!?! There seems to be only two benefits I notice right with not drinking and that is better sleep and I just forgot the second one, so it can’t be improved memory! Haha. I’ll post when I remember what I was going to say. :roll_eyes:


#39061

Oh yeah not having hangovers! How the hell did I forget that?? Hormonal brain fog is the cause I am sure of it!


#39062

Day 4 is done, complete, a success haha :slight_smile: Heading to bed for the night again. Night!


#39063

I was the same at around the 11 day mark. You are not losing the plot. I found the first two weeks really tough mentally and physically. It is only in the last week or so really that my relentless cravings have diminished though I am still fighting headaches every few days, and sleep problems. It gets better @Ady - you just need to hold tight for a bit more


#39064

Checking on Day 38 with Henry. I decided to name my headache since he is so committed to following me around and going everywhere with me. I commit to remain sober today and hope you all have a strong day - or at least find the strength you need to get through it and make it count.


#39065

@Buts thank you thank you @liv_m thank you and ha ha ha. The pic is so funny


#39066

:tada: Only 1 month to go and you did every month one time sober @Frank68 !! :trophy:

Congratulations @Annaka, I’m so glad for you!! :baby: :heart:

It takes time @Addictive to feel better. For me the first 3 or 4 weeks were the hardest. I was irritated, depressed, didn’t sleep well. Sober you as you see it now, is not the sober you you become! The sober you has to balance out, it takes time!

Another one with almost a year in the pocket! You @Twowaymirror!! :trophy:

Let’s kill Henry @Peace12!! :hammer::gun::wrench::bow_and_arrow::rage:
Hope he’s died soon! :wink:

Day 144 and goodmorning! :raising_hand_woman:
Hard day at work yesterday. Have a new co worker and I have to get used to her. She founds me strict (I’m assistant manager). It makes me uncertain. I want her to like me, but otherwise I want the work done as it should be it in “my” store. I am a hard worker, a “in control” type and a perfectionist. So it’s hard for me to let go.
I am to strict to myself and so I am to strict to others too :flushed:
I have to work on that.
:heart:


#39068

Idk if Henry is a good name for a headache but it works for me, I believe King Henry VIII was fond of chopping the heads off his ex wives, since divorce wasn’t popular he felt death by beheading achieved what he wanted lol. So off with there head…ache lol


#39069

Buts way 2 go! But I have to say lol your always a day behind lol :wink:. Congratulations on 144! Keep kicking some Dutch ass!
