today was hard. i slept a lot and i havent been taking care of myself because i have no enrgy but coming on here and reading peoples stories has kept me from messing up and ive been sober for 2 days. im proud of myself because recovery is hard but i have some good friends who keep me going.
Well done Ryan…
Try and look after your basic needs, plenty of water, eat, and maybe a nice hot shower, it’ll help you feel a bit better.
Glad you have good friends
Congrats on day 2! I slept alot that first week too. Do whatever you need to get thru the day sober. It gets better. Dont stop quitting until the miracle happens!
Keep going! Once you get over the hump you will start feeling better.
It’s going to get tricky so remember to reach out, it’s what we do. Your doing great BTW.
I’m proud of you for getting through day two. This post honestly made me comment in the community for the first time. It’s a lot of great posts but the “day 2” post was what I needed. My second day (yesterday) was super hard. I’m scared of what tonight might be like but I’m still saying “hey at least I’m not blackout drunk” . It’s hard… but progress is progress.
Welcome to the forum @Ceeagee Cee
Well done on day 3
Thank you I appreciate that.
I’m on day 2 as well. No energy, feel so exhausted, just want to stay in bed… but I tried getting out of the house today and do something somewhat productive. Made me feel a little better
you totally got this i find it helps to keep your hands buay to distract your mind.
