Meandering through Day 4, so very grateful my sober cousin invited me to dinner and a movie, will make Saturday night SO much easier.

Day 13. Long hike with the fam and dog but cravings are hitting me hard today. Trying to stay busy but having a hard time with my brain telling me I should have a drink today.

@Serenity412 13 days is huge and I know from the person who comes through in your posts that you have the willpower and determination to get thru this craving. I had a similar flash in the pan attempt by my psyche to get me to drink on the way home from work yesterday. As much as I tried to get it out of my head, I could taste it and wanted it. That’s where the clarity and hindsight of a sober mind comes into play. I grabbed a hot bath, chugged some sparkling water and went to work writing and reading posts on here. Vent if u need to. If ur having a hard time chat about it. U and I are 1 week apart…ur hitting 2 week tomorrow and I’ll be checking in at 3 weeks. U GOT this.

109 days alcohol-free


#13449

Just try to remember all the reasons that you decided to quit. Would drinking be worth throwing all of that away?


#13450

Thank you!! Did the hot bath and sparkling water too and then got on here and watched some football to distract myself. Feeling a bit better.


#13451

Thank you…i am thinking things through to how I’ll feel tomorrow if I drink today. It’s helping.


#13452

And you got a hike in today?!?! Check u out!

We took the kids to see a movie and so far my food intake for the day has been a hot dog, nachos, popcorn, candy, frozen yogurt :nauseated_face:. I have NEVER been a junk food person. I still haven’t got back on track with my physical training and haven’t kicked this sugar habit yet. I can’t begin to imagine how much my alcohol intake was affecting my blood sugar and insulin :grimacing:

Good on you for getting a hike in, u seem to be doing well in the outdoor exercise category…so jealous! I just gotta get out and do it this weekend.


#13453

I know, my sweet tooth has been extra active without wine in my life! Nachos sounds good too…

Yeah I like to get outside on the weekends since I work inside all day during the week, especially since our house is small and it’s the rainy season so when the sun is out i have to get out there! The kids complain a little about hiking at first but they always end up liking it.


#13454

Day 346 complete. Got a womans number and she reads the KJV, doesnt drink, and has a good job. I only see good things comming to my future praise be to God.


#13455

Thanks hun!! :grin:


#13456

Awesome, sounds promising! You just put that out there the other day about finding someone, God is delivering! :blush:


#13457

Right how awesome is that?! Now i just have to see if i want the puppy in March. Its so much work but itd be so awesome

So got my 30 day coin at lest nights meeting in my city. That was a great feeling! Went to the neighboring city’s meeting tonight (I rotate between the two cuz I love them both). Had a guy that was attending his first ever AA meeting, so I got to share my whole story for the first time ever. Man I did not realize how powerful and pivotal that would be! Nor how much I needed to hear myself say some of those things out loud. Also didn’t expect to cry as much as I did either… Today just felt like a turning point for me yet again, and a strengthening in my faith and in my resolve to live surrendered and sober. I’m just so grateful and humbled by this second chance and the option of a “full” life. God is better to me than I could ever deserve or ever imagined he was.


#13459

Yes the pup is a lot of work but the payoff is amazing. We adopted a dog a year ago and he has brought so much joy to our home, i can’t believe we didn’t get one sooner.
