Today is 30 days!

I have to admit I didn’t think I would get here. But 30 days. Wow. Tomorrow will be one calendar month.

I’m starting to no longer miss drinking in the evenings. In the beginning it took a lot of strength and resolve to not open the liquor cabinet but now I don’t even think about it. It doesn’t bother me anymore to see my hubby drinking a glass of wine, though he definitely is drinking less himself.

I’ve also finally stopped drinking juice all the time (I guess sugar cravings) and eating all the time so I’m hoping that this is the start of the famous weight loss. I did lose 2 pounds this week but I don’t want to assume that this is the not a fluke. We’ll see long term. But all those years of alcohol did do a number on my waistline.

Oh, I think I’m losing some edema fluids too. I noticed in the shower yesterday that the bottoms of my feet felt less puffy. I had never noticed fluid in my ankles so I thought I was doing okay but now I remember after having IV fluids after a previous surgery that the bottoms of my feet tend to hold fluids. I didn’t notice that the fluid was there but I DID notice that it was gone now…if that makes any sense.

So, my hubby is taking the kids to a friends’ cottage for a few days so I have tonight to celebrate my 30 days. I’m planning on doing a little shopping on my way home from work and maybe even picking up some yummy vegan food for my dinner. Then I’m going to Netflix my night away!!!


:clap:t2::clap:t2::clap:t2:CONGRATULATIONS!! Very inspirational!! I can’t wait to get there myself, working on day 5 and really looking forward to getting my first week down…haven’t been able to make a week in 2 yrs so it’s exciting :hugs:


AMAZING @VSue! Proud of you. One month down. Many more wonderful sober months and years to come :sunny: happy sober day and anniversary :blush:

There are some serious milestones in the journey aren’t there? 1 day, 3 days, a week, 2 weeks, 30 days/a month.
And this is such a big one - CONGRATULATIONS!


Wowza! Great job…something I would love to post someday. Your success is mine too. Thanks for posting! Enjoy the celebration!

well done on 30 days

@VSue, Absolutely fantastic! Congratulations many times over. I am hoping for the same results and I thank you for the motivation! Enjoy your Netflix (I got hooked on the Crown).

I already finished The Crown and then finally Stranger Things (though that was hard…it kept freaking me out!!). I’ve heard so so things about OA.

Not sure what it’s on but ‘Rectify’ is amazing.

:fireworks: Congrats @VSue :tada:.

You’re amazing. Thank you for sharing, it really helps all of us :slight_smile:

Thanks everyone. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the show I wanted to watch anymore…so I crawled into bed and read for several hours. I think I will do the same tonight. Rockin’ Friday night at my house.


Good job man! I’m glad you are part of this group. Your posts and comments make me stronger. Take care
