Had my psych evaluation yesterday. I have my first therapy appointment tomorrow.

Today is just a work day. I’m glad I was able to come back to work for this employer. I feel really comfortable with the atmosphere and the people. The job pays well and I’m doing something that matches my level of experience and ability. It feels good to have a job I’m proud of again.

Hi everyone, just a quick word to say hi before going to bed. With any luck, tomorrow will be my last day at the factory, and then I can go back home. It hasn’t been a bad assignment, and I certainly like the people for whom I have been working, but still, it’s nice to get home.
Anyway, all is going well in terms of sobriety, I’m creeping up on 22 days, and I can see the “1-month” mark getting closer.
Goodnight everyone, have a safe and sober Thursday.

You’ve made it 3 weeks, why not go ahead and make it 4?!?! You can totally do it! One day at a time.

Check in time! Day 358 is under way and I’m feeling good. Haven’t been on here much the last month. Life seems to be taking me in different directions. My sobriety is still important but I feel like I’ve gotten to a place where I don’t have to think about it 24/7. So I’ve started focusing on dropping some of the weight I’ve gained in sobriety. I swapped drinking with eating and that’s not exactly healthy either. I’m aiming for physical and emotional sobriety here and I can’t ignore the issues I have with food anymore because “at least I"m not drinking”. That’s been an excuse for me to eat too much and it ends now! (Well about 2 weeks ago). Congrats to all who’ve hit milestones I missed. If you are new here - press on!! It gets easier!!

Day 24
Husband at home today so no relapse worries today (hopefully there wouldn’t be anyway). Got the paperwork for some money off the kitten’s neutering operation. The lady obviously understood his name Noisy and was asking if he meows a lot (he does). My husband has relented that the cat is allowed in the entrance and on one chair. If he scratches or goes near the futon he gets chucked outside ASAP.

98.91days. Feeling repulsed by alcohol and man I hope it sticks. I quit smoking 22 years ago, and it was hard. Eventually cigarettes repulsed me and they still do. I’ve never been drunk enough to put a cigarette to my mouth in these 22 years, so that’s saying a lot. I would love for that to happen with alcohol. Here’s what I’m noticing this time — I’m not getting triggered by “glamorous” people drinking on TV. That was always a huge trigger for me.

I won’t get overly excited as I’ve felt this way before. I know one thing, I’ll never get complacent. This addiction is insane and wildly progressive. I still haven’t spoken about my last relapse and not sure if I will. But it’s fresh in my mind, and I remember the end days at the hospital fairly well. There was a particular TV commercial that was over played, like annoyingly so. The way the guy said the word today was so annoying to me. Well the commercial still plays every morning, so I hear it everyday. And everyday when that chucklehead says “today” it brings me back to the hospital. I hate it, but maybe I need it.

249 days substance free
82 days self injury free

Traveling to the mainland tomorrow and will have a little visit with an old friend I havent seen in 5 years. Should be fun, I’m looking forward to it.
My exhusband is a dick and is withholding alimony payments because I havent returned a text message he sent me two days ago. I’m thinking about what I want to say to him and there’s no reason why I need to answer him immediately. Anyways he is only going to make his life harder… never was the brightest crayon in the box. :woozy_face:
