105 days. It’s a beautiful sunny day here although it’s like 18 degrees farenheit. Gonna be another wonderful sober Saturday! Put a sober head on your pillow tonight everyone.

Not to shabby. I have managed to buy a car, not commit murder and lost a few lbs

9 months? Hell yes, @AyBee. :partying_face:

It was a rough week for me (lots of discouraging, overwhelmed thoughts, the thoughts, “I should be able to ____”), things like that. But I am coming back and trying to work the problem one step at a time.

  1. Feeling overwhelmed. I’m going to write a to-do list on paper & check it off daily. I’ve combined this with a sketch pad - I can sketch & soothe my worries with the same book!
  2. Feeling discouraged at the end of the day because I haven’t accomplished the tasks I set for myself. I’m going to plan my calendar for next week so that I have my least-interesting tasks first. That means once those are done I can go a bit more with what I feel like doing for the rest of the day.
  3. I’ve been having weekly meetings with my colleagues which has helped me feel on the same page about what I should be doing with my time. That’s a step forward!

Will report back on this when I check in next. :innocent:

Day 184.
Last days at home. Kidfree weekend so instead of breaking my head over my silly mind, spending some quality time with the wife while I still can :slight_smile:

Checking in. I am thinking about getting to 90 days. I don’t want to obsess about it and then feel I’m done once I get there or start getting complacent. Need to be in today, another non drinking day.

1 week sober and feeling good. :blush:
I love that my weekends last longer when I’m not blacking out and wasting my time being a drunk idiot.

My first week is officially at midnight.
Feeling much more relaxed not nursing hangovers daily.
I’m a lot more tolerant of things too.
Early nights are helping, speaking of which… Zzzzzzzz

Wow @AyBee, when did you rack up so many days? I remember when you were waiting for a spot at the recovery center. And here you are now. Congratulations :confetti_ball::balloon::tada:!!!

@Hazy
Great job on 4 days!!! I know it is hard right now, but keep hanging on. One day at a time and don’t over think it.

@Peeceeuk
Great job on your first week. Keep fighting one day at a time.
