Hi everyone. So I’m on day 3 of being sober and I was totally fine earlier but now I’m completely irritated with everything! Ugh I don’t know how I’m feeling…I’m so confused…
It is so common and normal. It will pass I promise you! You are on the right path!
@Betterbee it’s normal to have emotional swings for some time. But there is nothing to be confused about as far as what to do - not drink. Everything else is secondary.
I’m on day 3 as well and while my shaking is slightly gone, I still have a large amount of anxiety and guilt for relapsing. I took it upon myself to take showers to make me feel better - finally started eating again - and did some reading/research on this disease. Be kind to yourself - it’s ok to not feel okay. Keep going - all will pass. You got this!
I have a lot of guilt and anxiety too, there’s so many poor choices I made. And my bad and irritated mood faded away. It goes up and down since I gave up drinking. But I’m determined not to be tempted. I want to do this right! I’ve made bad choices before but I can’t let it hold me back from all the good that could happen!
Thanks for the support everyone! It seems like my moods just go up and down like a roller coaster. It’s annoying sometimes, I don’t like snapping at people. So if I’m in a stressful situation, I just try to breathe and clear my head in some way. Mostly I walk, I have lots of energy so it’s good to run around. That seems to help.
I was a mess the first couple of weeks .irritable …crying for no reason and tired as well…it gets better
God I hope so. I’ve been irritable and not sleeping and truthfully it’s exhausting. I just need to fix my sleep schedule if that’s even possible.
