Was a difficult week: not in craving or wanting to drink, it was all about emotions. Last months, before i got sober, i recognized a pattern that triggers my drinking hugely: the week before i get my periods (PMS week), i drank more and got more black outs. I know there is a relation between PMS and excessive drinking. I am an emo-drinking woman. Last week emotions hit me hard, sometimes without reason, some related to the past ( memories of my father was violent when he drank), related to loneliness ( i pretend i am a strong woman and can do everything on my own), sadness ( my mom who does not pass by " just to pass by" but when there's a reason to: i feel not seen) and so on... i had no urge to drink on them but let the emotions be there.
Don't know if other women can relate?
Whish you all a wonderfull sober weekend and sooooo thankfull i have you all as my supporting " family"
