Stay busy! Get out and exercise if you enjoy that…hiking, running, etc. Something to get those good endorphins going to make you feel good! Have some yummy non alcoholic drinks on hand, I like making sparkling water mixed w lemonade and a squeeze of lime in a nice glass…something refreshing that tastes good, more exciting than plain water.
Also I’m reading a book called The 30 Day Sobriety Solution which has been really motivating. You read a bit each day and then do some journaling, really helps me stay focused and remember why I’m doing this.
And then just think how great you’ll feel and how proud of yourself you’ll be on Monday after staying sober this weekend, it’s a great feeling! It’s tough but so worth it to feel empowered and like I’ve gained some control of my life back. You can do it!
