First day of not drinking

This is gonna b so difficult but I know I kin do it


Never give up. :+1::grin:

You’ve got this. It is better to make mistakes getting to your goal, rather than never try. Sending you good vibes.

You can absolutely do it. Take it one day at a time. I started out every day just telling myself I wouldn’t drink that day. I refused to think about the next day or forever not drinking. And that’s what has gotten me through. Stay here on the app and read if you have time. Lots of good information and encouragement to be found here. I find the checking in Daily thread very encouraging. You can use the search function to find topics that interest you. Just click on the little magnifying glass in the upper right hand corner. Best of luck to you! Hope to see you around.


Just take it minute by minute. When I thought about never drinking again at the very beginning it scared me and was overwhelming. Good luck. Everyone here is awesome and extremely supportive. Also congrats for making the decision to stop!


You can do this … never give up my friend. I failed time and time again to get even a day together it took me years of destroying myself then one day I had enough of feeling so shit and depressed I just couldn’t do it anymore that’s when I finally reached out 4 help . I was hooked on crack and heroin. I had to have a fix every 4-6 hours it was living in hell … keep coming on here and talk about how u r feeling there’s always someone who will help or listen to you . Have you tried aa ? That really opened the door to a new life for me . I been doing recovery for 9 months but had a slip last month but I just had to get straight back into recovery. I hated how it made me feel. Clean and soba life is the best x good luck x

Hi brave @Doritos,
Oh you make me crave chips haha, doritos is a tortilla chips brand here in Holland.
First of all WELCOME!
This app is super and maybe you can go to the site of Annie Grace the naked mind. And sign up for the 30 day experiment. Its free .
Would you like to share some more about yourself? Maybe we can be more helpfull then.
For now i wish you a good strong day or night, where ever your time zone is. Be gentle with yourself and PROUD. Every goal starts with that first step and you made that step.

Every day not drinking is a victory, well done!

Going through life knowing your an alcoholic is better then going through life a drunk keep strong any sign you have about having a drink get out and do something different to what is making you think this I crave a drink in the most odd places and I take my self somewhere else it works last night I wanted to drink so I turned a brick into powder made a mess in the meantime but I didn’t drink, well done getting your self here x

Day 1, you can get thru it! Don’t listen to the little voice in your head that will eventually try to tell you that you should drink. There’s a reason why you quit, keep that fresh in your mind! Feed the good thoughts not the bad ones. Before you know it you’re gonna have a week with no booze and then a month and so on! But just don’t drink today, that’s all you gotta do.
