Yes! That’s the big one Tasha. We’re in this together and we can’t do it alone. Huge congrats on making it to Sunday morning sober. Let’s build on that. One day at a time. Big hugs.
Well done for your first weekend. Thats a massive achievement! Whenever i wake up on a sunday its always a massive relief to have got another friday saturday over and done with!
Great. Well done. I just got my second done. We can do this. Keep it up!
Congratulations! Those first few humps are actually the hardest. Keep up the good work!
So glad to hear and happy for you!! It is such a good feeling!!!
Congrats! Weekends ars tough when a person is early in sobriety…
Amazing The happiennss if wakening up at the weekend sober when your circle is all hungover it makes you more proud keep it up
YES!!! What a lovely way to wake up (regret and hangover free). Congrats on making it through the weekend! This is huge! You definitely are not ALONE here.
Stick around and together we can keep growing the sobriety days.
Great job! Starting can be tough, but it gets easier. Keep going. You’re doing great!
Congrats…weekends can be buggers. I just made it through my 5th and it was a bit rough…Sunday at least. I had the worst cravings yesterday than I’ve had since my first week. I had a very busy morning and early afternoon, but a very lazy/loungey late afternoon/evening. We had some passing thunderstorms late afternoon that brought a bit of rain and cooled everything down to a gorgeous 72* and that crispness in the air made me long for a sit on the patio with a G&T but I prevailed.
I cant help but feel like this first weekend was just too easy… like that was not the hardest… but I will deal with the cravings or urges when they come. For now, I just wana stay grateful that I am trying…again.
Great job. Those first days remind me of starting a diet and heading back to the gym. Once I start I’m good it’s just those first few weeks of getting up at 4/30am to but the gym. But once it becomes habit it’s hard to stop.
I never was a day drinker. I even went to bars at lunch and never drank even when I was drinking. I was a night and weekend drinker. I decided to make my nights shorter by getting up early so when I got home from the kids sports there was zero time to drink. Weekends I planned stuff Saturday and Sunday mornings I knew that did not want to do hungover.
Identify where your weakness lies and plan or be so tired you have zero energy to drink.
This board was essential to my sobriety. I didn’t want to let people down the first few months.
Let’s make it thru this coming weekend together and sober again!!!
Thank you for this, It makes so much sense and I am going to give it a try
That’s so good. I have 15 days… i had 5 days and drank… this last time really scared me, didn’t see any way out. It’s true what they say about EVERYTIME getting harder.
Thought I was going to have to go into rehab. Ugh… not really an option for me.
Instead, I turned to my AA ladies…
And listening to the AA book. It really explains a lot about OUR alergy.
ONE taste of alcohol and your body goes into craving OVERLOAD.
CONGRATULATIONS to you. Huge Hugs
