Day 2 seems to be harder then day 1. How to stop the racing thoughts and urges and relax
Day 96 is hard for me too. You ok?
Are you doing ok?
Yeah, I’m starting over with this being my day 5 after relapse. Nights kinda suck right now. I’ve just been getting up and doing stuff. Then napping during the day if I can. I feel your pain
Keeping busy helps. I have family in town rn and they are drinking and having a good time.
Congrats on day 2 Jen.
I did two angry power walks a day with some Eminem and some other angry Gangsta type music. I walk my ass off. I was so mad. 2 hot showers a day. I’d take a scalding long hot shower at 5 pm instead of drinking and sit in it and cry for about 20 minutes. I was always so angry I couldn’t drink like a normie. After crying it out cook a nice meal and plenty of sparkling water in my favorite wine glass. And then clean house. I was a mess.
This sobering up is hard work. But so worth it. And I didn’t believe it but it does get easier.
Meetings and guided meditations work well too. And actively working a gratitude list every day.
Keep checking back in. We’re here for ya.
Congrats on 2 days! Have you tried meditation? It’s my go to when I can’t sleep. I wish I would have put more effort into it in my early days, it sure would have saved me from a lot of sleepless nights. Insight timer is a great app. Here’s a link to a thread with tons of meditation suggestions.
