It is officially the 7th day beginning of my sobriety and I’m not even craving anymore. I’m really enjoying feeling good and healthy and not acting stupid as I did when I would get drunk. I respect myself so much more as a person when I am sober and my mind functions at full capacity as it should. I have patience, rationalization, stability, and content in my days now. I haven’t had 7 days in 6 years. 6 years ago I quit drinking but replaced it with pot and in three months with hitting the gym 6 days a week I was able to lose 35 pounds, but I still wasn’t sober, and my diet was horrible, I skipped meals and did too much time at the gym, that’s no life, my intent was to take a break from alcohol and lose weight but being older and wiser now I know that I’m an alcoholic and my life will only be the way I want it if I am completely uninhibited, and I want to be HEALTHY, not skinny. I’m loving this me. Everything will come in time. I started running today, spending the day swimming at the beach tomorrow, while I still have some days off before my new job starts. I’ll be starting the new job with 18 days sober and it’s HAPPENING! Yay me!!! Yay us!!!
