It's The 4th January 2018 and I am starting Day 1 of an alcohol free life. I've tried many times over the last 3 years but failed and after recent blackouts, falls and embarrassing behaviour, I've hit a point in my life where it HAS TO STOP for myself, kids and hubby. It's 17th February, 2019 and I'm starting Day 1 AGAIN. I know my life will be so much better without it and I'm determined to kick it for ever. So, ground hog day again ...its the 1st of July 2019 and I'm starting on Day 1 again. To be honest, my drinking has not been resulting in horrendous behaviour or anything this year but I just don't feel good after & it makes me feel anxious, depressed & out of control the next day. Given its Dry July - what better time to start whilst lots of others are doing the same....here goes...one door closes and one opens into a better life.
I keep thinking about tomorrow morning as well. I also got myself a delicious cold tea and a pastry after keeping very busy today and now that it’s the time I would normally start in on the drinks, I’m on here reading supportive comments instead. 🙂
That was me too–desperate for wine before dinner, but fine afterwards… Crazy. : ) I now have cranberry juice with sugar-free tonic water and a lime while I fix dinner, and the Wine Witch is silent. Hang in there! You’ve got this!
