    Day 2 ! I’m made it through my day then night a.f which the help of you all and reading others stories and advise so thank u so very much !!!!! Have to say my sleep was crap.. my skin was so hot and I was then having sweats which then made me cold and sticky … I hope this subsides fast ???? Thank you 4 helping me friends xxx

    • Hopefully tonight will be way better. Celebrate a new, free life on its way!

    • It gets better, be proud of yourself! 🙂

    • you’re on your way! x

    • Congratulations on day 2. You’ll feel cruddy for a few days, stay hydrated and be kind to yourself, it gets better.

    • Not being able to sleep will carry on for a few more days yet, but this is as it should be; it is your body recognising the absence of alcohol. It will come right as will the racing mind, fast heartbeat and sweatiness. The other change you may notice when these settle down is that your skin colour will come back and you’ll look healthier again. You’re doing great. Keep doing what’s working.

    • Wise and brave. Best decision you ever made. Stick with it and the world will be your oyster xx

    • it gets better every day, drink water or some kind of fluids, everything keeps on changing, enjoy the ride and the journey.

    • Oh yes. Trust that it definitely gets better – in fact, it gets better and better every single day. Even if you’re have a shit day, you’ll find it’s still better than a day spent recovering from a drunk night. Hang in there. And keep coming back here. The folks here are awesome – and really wise. You can do this.

      • God anyday no matter hoe bad ever is as bad as a hangover day !!!! I look forward to every day getting better and better xxx
