    Oh, boy…three years later and many unsuccessful attempts to quit. This is the first time I’ve logged on in a such long time, and I’m embarrassed by my rambling first post. Anyway, I’ve only been sober for a couple weeks now, but it’s more than I’ve racked up in some time and I’ve got a good feeling about it. 🤞 Hope you’re all doing well! 🤗

  • Hi everyone, I’m on a new Day 5 and feeling pretty good. For nearly ten years, my drinking has been increasing, and I’ve tried many times to stop. The past couple years I’ve drank between 25 – 30 ounces of vodka each day/night (which I’ve attempted to convert online as this is a New Zealand website, and I got 708 – 850 grams). I’m 5’4″ and 140 lbs (gone up a lot in weight since drinking so much) – anyway, my withdrawals haven’t been terrible considering the amount I drink. I have had pretty bad sleep and crazy, intense dreams, but I’m just trying to stay busy. I have definitely been moody and irritable, but I’m trying to walk it off/breathe it out for the sake of my husband and kids. I have some benzos on hand in case I need them. I’ve been listening to random podcasts, trying to learn a language on Duolingo, and boy is my house getting clean! I’m happy to not feel guilty in the morning, and to remember what I did the night before. Thanks for reading. πŸ™‚
