Checking in daily to help maintain focus

That’s a big deal on changing up how you celebrate. You can still toast… maybe with a bowl of ice cream :slight_smile:

Thank you

Fags are cigarettes here in Essex, England! Dirty word really! :joy:


#16751

Thank you :grin:


#16752

Congrats to 4 days and the new car :grinning:


#16753

And most of all congratulations to the sober celebration :+1::+1::+1:


#16754

Thanks for all the congratulations, I feel good. But I can’t sleep. Is that normal in early sobriety?


#16755

Checking in on day 6 feeling exhausted after a heavy nightshift but looking forward to a few days off work now. Although evenings on my days off always trigger me to drink. I determined to stay strong this time.


#16756

You can do it!


#16757

Yes it is @Ninetales. Body is detoxing and this leads to insomnia. Take a nap when ever you can and allow yourself to rest. Be proud of yourself


#16758

How long does this go on?


#16759

Yes, it’s normal. It lasted some 4, 5 weeks for me. The quality of my sleep has improved.

Day 72. Starting to feel like spring is on its way here. Saw some lambs last weekend…but most won’t be born till next few weeks onwards

The daffodils are getting ready to bloom

I have a busy day at work… a few difficult meetings and alot of horrible changes ahead…but I’ll weather them better sober
Have a great day folks

Morning! Day 3 which is always a difficult one for me so for my reason of the day I’m bringing out the big guns. Today’s reason is because my son cried on Sunday when he saw me pour a glass of wine. A moment of horror, shame and sadness for me and I don’t want to repeat it.


#16763

I’m giving one reason each day because I’m overwhelmed by the complications and stress of my situation so instead of having lots of reasons to quit I’m thinking of just one at a time


#16765

Checking in early on DAY 53 sugar-free & DAY 194 alcohol-free.

Good and fairly productive day, thankful it was no where near as shitty as the other day. It is like the rainbow after the rain :rainbow:

Good luck @mamador with your new job…yay :tada:

If ever there was a reason it is the :heart: for our kids @Li5a . Love your daily reasons.
