Day 357. Had a really good session with my therapist today. Walked home feeling enlightened and strengthened. Been feeling quite anxious this week but I’ll listen to an audiobook and go to bed early. Always a victory going to sleep still clean.

Day 25. Yesterday was really hard for me but I made it through. I looked in the mirror and asked myself what would happen, how I would feel if I caved and bought some vodka. Answer: I would feel sick the next day, I would blow it, and I’m so close to a month. And I imagined myself buzzed, drunk, sitting there watching TV with a drink in my hand. Would it really make me feel better than I do sober doing the same activity? I played it all out in my head, the drinks, then the subsequent binge eating on crappy food, the inability to sleep, waking up with a hangover.
Today is a new day and I don’t feel as weak as I did yesterday. I know there will be more days like that. I’m really feeling the “one day at time” thing.

What happened to your vodka ??
Is it still with you?

I never went and got it :grinning:
I wanted it so bad. I went over it over and over in my mind. But I didn’t go and get it

I was picturing it in my hand, in my mind. Imagining the whole scenario.

It’s nice.
Don’t drink again.
I can tell you it’s bad when we are using again.

Stick to
Food, water, oxygen.
