Made it past Day 30, and did not drink during the Stupor Bowl. Wow, what an awful game. Half-time show was painful to watch- Sponge Bob? Really? Feeling good, am doing the ‘alcohol experiment’ again for Feb. Hope everyone is doing well. 🙂
Omg, that’s wonderful! I’m with @Liberty, make sure it works for you. Our public school employees tend towards alcohol a lot but you can show them how it’s DONE. I’m SO proud of you for getting through the weekend! You were a little worried. You grew some big sober muscles there.
DAY 28. Feeling good. Had a minor slip around week 2, but have been on track with being AF this month. I’m a little worried about the upcoming Super Bowl though, as I know I’ll be tempted to drink beer, and eat junk. I ordered Annie Graces’ new book, and will be working through it, and shooting for another 30 days in February. Hope everyone…[Read more]
28 days – amazing!! I was nervous on Christmas Day and knew I would be tempted. I got through it by telling myself I just wasn’t going to drink. I didn’t let myself be tempted – just said a flat no to the first drink and then it got easier and easier to say no as the day went on. I promise you will never wake up in the morning regretting that you…[Read more]
Great job @sobere, I’m sure the Superbowl is a worrisome event for many. I just saw that now Atlanta is bracing for unusual icy cold weather too. I’m wondering if that will affect the game as the article said many flights have already been canceled.
There will always be another Super Bowl so how about keeping that sober momentum going and just enjoy the game and commercials. Drink at the next one. I always think how much productivity is lost the day after. I mean I love football but never understood why it’s late on Sunday night.
I’m OK on Day 26. Feeling kind of blah though, even though I took a nice hike today in beautiful Tucson, AZ. I suppose those alcohol pathways take time to wash away. I wish that a great Tsunami would hit my brain, and wash it clean of any alcohol. Wishful thinking, right? Have a nice day my fellow AF warriors.
Maybe the blah is from being Sunday night (when you wrote this…it is currently Monday morning) and dealing with the blues of a new week. I developed a habit of using alcohol on late Sunday afternoons as it seemed to mitigate that blah feeling, but I found myself panicky feeling on Monday mornings. Hope today is better for you.
Day 25. Not much to report, just chugging along. Went for a nice hike in the mountains today. It helps to clear my head, and build strength. Thanks for the shout out @NewStartSteph, and congrats on your Day 25! 🙂
Thank you for sharing this sobere … I can say that I went over what I did over and over again just bewildered that I did it. If I had hurt someone or killed someone or damaged someone else.s property because of my drinking I don’t think I would be able to live through it. There is no ‘getting away with it’ in this…I carry the knowledge that I t…[Read more]
@sobere that is so cool. I live just a few hours from Spokane. It’s lovely there. That must have been a cool experience even if it wasn’t really what you wanted to do. Cool you went with your Mom and sister.
