Coming to the end of day 67. I’ve made it through the day yey. Went to the cinema with my daughter and it has totally knocked my mind off it’s track. I have been really tempted today aswell an had a few of those debates you have in your heas trying to justify going to buy some wine. I feel so much more relaxed now it’s coming to the end of the day. Tomorrow i travel down to England to visit my brother for the weekend. There won’t be any temptation because he rarely has a drink. So I’m gonna have a great weekend. There’ll be no time for that lying monster on my shoulder begging me to give up.
Checking in! Day 65! Wooo!
Been a minute since I’ve checked in but I’m doing awesome still! I just got off my Suboxone the other day. Hoping things stay the same. Hope the best for you all!
Um…cough cough pupper pictures cough cough
Nice!! Keep it up!!
End of Day 6. Tomorrow is Day 7. I’ve caved every single weekend. I need to stay strong this time. It’s really hard on the weekends.
Thanks, she is gorgeous!
Congrats on the day count as well!
I haven’t posted on this thread for a awhile. In the beginning I would post every night before bed or every morning when I got up. I’m 53 days now! This thread kept me going for weeks. I went from obsessing about alcohol every minute of the day to now only occasional thoughts crossing my mind. What a difference a few weeks make, if you just hold on…Thanks everyone!️
Good morning sober world!
Good morning day 357!
Good morning meditation day 80
The worlds beauty grows in my Journey of sobriety. I find myself ”craving” things less and less, still I seem to get more and more in life by not wanting, demanding or craving. That is a huge gift in sobriety and I am very grateful!
Day 85 here I am ️
Well done for resisting. These conversations with ourselves happen but they become less frequent and sometimes take you by surprise.
The good thing is you know you will be fine if you stay sober so just remind yourself of that when they happen.
You can do this.
What helped me was asking myself; what do I do differently on the weekends? Do I get bored? Do I hang out with my regular friends? What are my temptations? Then do things that are not those things. I kept busy with things I liked doing, simple stuff reading and shopping without buying too much, yoga, I did healthy stuff for me. I also got new, sober friends. You are strong, and if you want sobriety, sobriety wants you. People say put your mind to it, but I say adapt your life to it.
Day 263. Meh. Still fighting as best I can. Wicked anxiety last night and nightmares. Less anxiety this morning.
One more day people, just one more day.
I’ve been here a lot of times just reading. And I’m so proud of everyone here on this thread. You are a massive support and inspiration.
So here I am again. Checking in at day one.
Day 25. quarter of the way to 100. hav a good sober day evry1.
Day 48, happy Friday!
Looking forward to a relaxing weekend, we have a break before the kids’ spring sports start up. Maybe if it’s not raining I’ll take our new kayak out for a spin. Found a used one yesterday that a neighbor was selling and bought it with the money I’ve saved on wine. Can’t wait to try it out.
Have a great sober weekend friends!
Checking in 00 ego-free days 11 smartphone-free days 48 sugar-free days 189 alcohol-free days
Almost made it through an entire whole day of ego-free living…right up until the end! I do find those moments triggering, especially when I’ve indulged my ego to win an argument or tried to increase my own sense of self importance. I would usually end up feeling bad, with an uncomfortable empty feeling I’d want to fill with a former addiction. Tomorrow is another day, so I’m going to try the mantra, “be assertive, respectful and kind…don’t be an arse”
Day 102, feeling hip after listening to my first podcast - (This Naked Mind). Podcasts are a whole new world!
