Just hit my 30-day mark two hours ago!

Today marks 30 days since my last drink! I’m happy about it, and it honestly hasn’t been that hard. There have been some moments where I feel a little bored, or down about the prospect of not drinking ever, but I just try to remind myself that every time I’ve gone back to it before, thinking “this time I’ll be responsible about it,” it never stays that way. And mostly I’ve felt great waking up every day feeling well-rested and healthy, and not going through my days with anxiety or being nagged by the constant thought of when can I get to my next drink, and it’s really wonderful not to be trapped in that mindset anymore.

Well done. That’s an amazing achievement. I think reminding yourself as to why you are doing this is a great idea. I keep that in mind even on the days when it feels easier. Well done :partying_face:

Congrats :blush: the first 30 days can be the hardest for many people! I certainly found it unbearable on multiple occasions before it stuck. Just remember to stay vigilant - there will undoubtedly be times to come where the urge to drink will be overwhelming. Those are the days where you get to prove just how badass you really are :muscle:

Biggest change is pretty much what I mentioned – not going through every day plagued by an inescapable thought of when I can get done with the day in order to get home and have a drink! It’s good not to feel controlled by that, and not have weird effects of withdrawal anxiety!

Congratulations! I’m on day 23. It’s not too hard at home but I haven’t figured out how to socialize. I just flake or avoid it. That can’t last forever. I’m worried my friends won’t want to hang out if I don’t drink. Any tips?

If they are true friends they will accept and support you. If not, they aren’t worth your concern.
