So, last night, did you make it to 10 days sobriety? How is the journey going so far? Has it been a struggle or a piece of cake? Have u felt tempted? Tell me how has it been for you!
I have been doing more exercise than usual, drinking a lot of water and playing it safe - avoiding risky situations as much as I can.
I quit alcohol and went vegan plus daily exercise, I’m feeling great. The temptation has been there but only a tiny whisper in the back of my mind. As long as I keep myself busy I’ll keep going.
Yes day 11 I’m doing ok. The sweats have stopped sleep seems to b my new addiction
I started dieting to which I found was a mistake as was craving alcohol again so for now I’ll just concentrate on that
Feel I have so much time now and finding things to do
When it starts getting to easy, get ready for your next drink. I can’t have an attitude like that. Drinking and using drugs will kill me if I do it again. I have to work my ass off to stay sober. Time helps but God, my higher power, meetings, and therapy are what works. I hope it gets easier for me.
I’m on Day 5 (had a sh*tty Monday and drank again but have picked myself up and dusted off). Had 10 days and 8 days since mid-Dec. Going to AA has helped, and the amazing support and encouragement I’ve found here has me optimistic for 2020! The difference is I’ve finally stopped just trying not to drink and have started working on self-reflection & self-improvement. As they say, “the same person drinks again” – I need a new me! Finally I’m starting to work on that!
Day 12, but I was not a resolution, just plugging back in. Yes, temptation has been strong.
“Why the hell am I bothering with this?” But here I am and here I continue to go and grow.
Yes, I had my last drink on NYE at about 9:45 pm. I have been doing well for the most part. I spend a lot of time at the gym and have been working hard at my job, so it hasn’t been too bad. I had one craving, but it passed rather quickly. I was surprised at how quickly it passed.
Yes , started on New Year’s Day (again!) Am doing ok . There is no wine in the house and my husband is doing dry January. The test will be when he starts again on February 1st
I started mine on Jan 2nd. So far so good. My husband asked me to get him beer the football games last night but I was good and drank water. I work up this morning knowing that if I would have given in and drank, I would have a headache.
I started at 4am new years day because I was still up drinking.
Thank you for that ! I do need to prepare because that is where I have fallen down before. It’s easy at the moment because he isn’t drinking . I’ll have a look at the relevant threads x
Thank you Jane.c. That is really useful. I am doing really well at the moment and feel so much better so I do need to prepare. No point in kidding myself that it’s going to change at the end of this month. I think the maim problem is that he doesn’t see that I have a problem! He keeps telling me that I’m not “that bad” but I know the really negative effect alcohol has on me and I am happier when I am not drinking.
