Back to day one, won’t give huge details here, not everyone in my support system agrees with me and thinks I’m being to hard on myself. I define my sobriety and for me, it was breaking my boundaries and definitions. So made it one day, I am strong, I will stay sober today. ODAAT
Hey, it’s been a while since anyone posted here. Hope you all are doing swell.
Haven’t posted in a while but thought accountability would be important. I am leaving to visit my family and the upcoming feasting day. I am terrified and this particular holiday is always a huge trigger for me. I can’t get out of it, and trust me I tried. I can feel myself spiraling with thoughts that are so unhealthy for me. Im already mentally drained and we haven’t even left yet. So, checking in, desperately reminding myself I am worth my sobriety and I have more worth than my appearance. Sending so much healing and hugs for all who are on this journey as well. One day at a time, we got this!
Wishing u strength as u get thru this holiday. I dont have much in the sense of suggestions or advice to help, but please know that im hoping for the best for u during this time. Hugs!
Grateful that you did check in Jenny. Sending you strength this week. I do know how hard this holiday in particular can be.
Don’t let it stress you out or overwhelm you - Don’t give it the power it needs to feed off of. I know this sounds easier said than done. Just try to find something peaceful to focus on. Meditate if you can to help ease your mind. You have been doing so well and i know you can continue to keep going strong.
Just remember that we are right here with you and you can reach out if you need support.
Sending you hugs and healing as well - you are worth your sobriety!
Thank you so much!
I did fairly well yesterday.
I have home made pastries in the house and Halloween candy and I managed to say no to them.
I did however eat toast, which I’m trying to also steer clear of, to help become a healthier weight.
Ate loads of celery, carrots, grapes, and yogurt. In doing so though I felt hungrier all day. Hoping to find the balance today or over the next few days.
