I loved drinking from the moment I first got drunk at 14. It made me feel more confident and less of an outcast. I binge drank my way through my teens and early 20s. It was always social and often very widely spaced apart. In my late 20s I started drinking at home, by myself. It evolved to a nightly bottle of wine that I couldn’t resist. I gave up during pregnancy and looking after a newborn and did a couple of agonising Febfasts. Here I am, 37 with a serious problem. I know moderation is not viable and sobriety is the way I need to go. I stopped drinking on 3 June 2019.
33 days without a hangover and I have been struck down with a head cold and sore throat. I feel like rubbish but it occurred to me that I actually felt worse on a daily basis when I was drinking. Don’t know how I sustained that for so long. So happy to have left that behind and so happy to be taking care of myself. Lemon drinks and a restful day ahead for me. Have s great day everyone.
I totally agree! My journey to sobriety began after I had influenza! I was so traumatised by it all , I made the connection that it felt similar after drinking! And I couldn’t figure out why the hell I did that to myself on purpose!!!! Rest up & get well soon my friend ❤️
