Starting back on day one today. I have had many. I don’t want to give up, but I am frustrated with myself. I guess thats part of it, the guilt and shame. I am also feeling very sick, hoping this passes soon. Sorry I am not as cheerful! Looking to meet friends if anyone else wants to chat. Thank you 🙏🏻
I can assure you, most of the people here will have slipped up from time to time. The important thing is to not give up. You’re here, so be proud of that…. you will do this. Ride out today feeling sick, and look forward to your sober sleep tonight, and feeling better tomorrow. You got this! And you’re most certainly not alone.
We sure do understand hun. Don’t quit quitting. I feel very tired and anxiety it high but I know as you do this shit will pass. Day 2 for you tomorrow and so on. Be good to yourself and drink plenty of fluids. We can do this xx
I read somewhere once, no shame in falling, only in not getting back up. Dust yourself off, let go, move forward positively. I’ve also had plenty of day ones. The good news is there is a different path for you and only you can find it and commit to it. It’s not always easy being sober but it has become for me very liberating. I hope your freedom from ‘the drink’, if that’s what you want, is close. Peace.
@chordaroy thank you! I know I am close, I do want that freedom back. Day 2 – seems like not much to be proud of, but get feeling better soon, the body takes time to heal. Then of course I need to put in some more work that what i was doing with my mind. Too much internal thinking! Thanks for the encouragement!
@katzenjammer – I’m good. Back to a week sober and feeling great. I am training for a half marathon, so i went to my run clinic yesterday and did 16k. How are you? I’m suppose to be joining a step group tomorrow, The woman knows I missed the first meeting last wk due to relapse. Hopefully I can jump in tomorrow, even tho the steps haven’t exactly helped me in the past, Its good to be around other woman in sobriety and working towards a same goal. So I think im going to stick it out. Hows ur journey going?
Like you, I think I’d try anything at this point if it might help. I have ordered some supplements supposed to be very good for arthritis and part of my current excuse for drinking is to ease arthritic pain (What is going to ease my liver pain when it is buggered, I hear you ask). Let’s just throw everything at it. The lot. lol
