Day 15 but just!
At the weekend my wife returned from visiting her sister who lives interstate.
She was tired, cranky and being quite a “b”.
I was sleep deprived yesterday and the combination of these things was triggering some very strong thoughts about getting on the drink.
Thankfully, I persevered and I think I have identified a dangerous trigger. (my wife LOL)
Hopefully I can learn and develop some strategies for this situation which I am sure will raise it’s ugly head again.
Today is a new day, I’m feeling more positive and thankful for still being sober and not waking up hung over and full of regret.
To all, keep going and have a happy sober day.

Just finished day 2. Ugh, it sounds so puny next to my previous 41. Oh well. Slept all day today. I hope I haven’t royally screwed up my sleep cycle, because that’s a recipe for disaster. I will go to bed soon and see how long I can sleep.

If you are headed to bed sober, I wish you sweet dreams. If you are getting up now, I wish you a wonderful sober day!

First time checking in, I think this will be helpful for me while I’m in a rough season of my depression.

I’m on day 33 with one addiction and day two of the other. Today has been stressful and full of self defeating thoughts. I want really bad to give in and relapse but I know that will hurt so many people if I do. But I’m making it, another few hours till I get off work and I’m done for the day.

Day 2. A lot to do as my semester finishes up

Day 44. I like today’s saying.

I’m remembering lately that I’m not stuck anywhere and the life I envision for myself isn’t this one I’m living. Being sober is amazingly wonderful, I love it! But it’s eye opening to really see all the issues around me that truly exist. I masked all of that before with drinking. I can’t and won’t do that again. So… guess the only thing left is to keep changing me as I move forward one day at a time and know that if I keep being true to myself and my needs, life will work itself out! :heart: Happy Monday folks!

Morning! Day 25. I am going into hospital tomorrow for a small procedure, and the prep plan says " no alcohol the day before and day of surgery". This would have stressed out the old me, but I just looked at it, and thought “I can do that” :blush:
Baby steps!

Checking in day 130 :blush:

Day 93. Went to a yoga class last night organized by a guy at one of my meetings, it’s for people in recovery and its 45 minutes of yoga followed by 15 minutes of meditation and then a half hour of talking/sharing, an “unofficial” AA meeting. Very relaxing and great way to end the weekend! :relieved::blue_heart:

Day 308. So happy I’m off work today! Just got through the most stressful 4 days at work and damn, my brain was just SCREAMING “the only way to finish this weekend is with a couple beers and shots.” But screw that! I know I can’t ever make it through the first few months of detox and sobriety ever again. So that means not using.

I have an appointment with another new primary care doc this morning the the rest of the day is all mine. 3 days off! Such a wonderful gift! Especially because I have the new computer and it’s beautiful outside. So reading on the porch and playing on my computer for the next 3 days.

Let’s all get another 24 hours! Much love to you all!

Day 413. My original goal was to quit long enough to pay for a vacation. We took our vacation in October. I am still going, and stronger in my sobriety every day. Keep going, guys. You will get better, stronger, and clearly , have a lot more money.
