Two weeks sober and

sobriety

#1

… I’ve woke feeling like all I wanna do is cry :sob:

I don’t want to pick up the bottle. And I definately don’t have suicidal thoughts, but I’m struggling with my emotions.

I own a nail salon, and today is the first day I’ve had to reschedule the entirety because I don’t feel up to it. I’m sure these feels will come to pass, but right now a house on a hill, surrounded in nature, secluded from people, is how I’m swaying.

Just feeling blah, and a little yuk about it all. I was about to message a friend in regards but then I found this app and felt more inclined to talk with those going through similar.

Aw I’m sorry! Sounds like your feelings are all over the place. Taking some time out might be just what you need. When we get sober, and stop suffocating our feelings, they can start surfacing uninvited can’t they. I don’t know your situation but just wanted to reach out and say hi, we’re all here. You’re right, it will pass. I hope it passes quickly for you.

Hi welcome. I don’t know what your DOC is but usually coming off it can cause high emotions. Best to go with it and really go for some self care. Pamper yourself. Go with the flow and be kind to yourself.
