I’m on day 60 and I’m setting here wanting a Friday night like I used to have. Telling myself that one night won’t hurt but we all know where that would lead. For years I abused my right to unwind with a drink. Reminding myself how much I’ve gained since I’ve been sober
You are completely right. Focus on the now.
Feeling the same on this Friday but one night is not worth it and I don’t know about you but it wouldn’t end up being just one night stay strong
Stay strong. The feeling you’ll get when you wake up sober is more gratifying than a drink will ever be (and you know it won’t be just one). It’s not worth it, you can power through!
Also think about how would you normally feel waking up on Saturday morning (or noon) after the Friday night drinking ,with that awful pounding headache,nauseous,tired,miserable etc…!!!8)))Not a nice vision,is it???Stay strong, its just another night!8))
Thanks guys!! We went out for supper, came home and set and talked about our new grandbaby we are getting in January. So thankful for this group of people that knows where I’m coming from
Yes, waking up sober and healthy and hydrated feeling is much nicer! I was tempted to have some wine tonight for a minute. But I run the risk of it becoming more than just one night. Sometimes I can show self control but others I can’t and it’s the binge days/week that it could turn into that keep my head in the game. You got this!
I have too my friend! No more hurting the ones I love. 140 days and finally understanding this. The best of luck and many well wishes on your sober journey
Friday night go to a meeting its become a habit over the years well done everyone have agreat week end
What’s wrong with drinking your ass off the night before only to wake up with nausea, headache, body aches, and your mouth feeling like you did a tongue stand in a flour mill? EVERYTHING! Get’s old quick right?
