Ready to rock this. 3rd day rising. Now 7th day since April 20, 2019 af. I love that moment in the morning that brings a little hope instead of regret. That moment of realization that I did not drink. I still feel my 55 years of overwork and drinking to excess. It feels good to think I'll try it again today.
It’s that panic guilt morning repetitive thought wheel that I am so thrilled to be off. I want you to know that in a short time you can find yourself feeling more calm and the panic release. There are subtle changes that change everything. I’m glad you’re here, too.
thank you for the replies. i was thinking it would be a sugar related issue to. i went for blood work they say im not diabetic. ive read into things to do with your insulin and sugar and “reactive hypoglycemia” or something along those lines seems like something i may have. the doctors said i was fine and they dont see anything but i sure dont feel that way.i agree with you beer is a sugar just like junk food so it does seem like a health issue. ive been okay today didnt eat much junk so when i watch my diet i dont get any hyperventilating and anxiety issues. but i will say that on the 3rd or 4th day of not drinking i am BORED to no end and feel like i really need something to pass the time. really wanted to slam back some beer today but guess what? zero money to do so and drinking is not even fun anymore seeing how it gives me the above symptoms^ so my life is…… empty and dull and i dont feel like watching tv, working, lights are on but it feels like no ones home! i have no idea how say ” i feel much better now that ive been sober for 2 months or 2 weeks etc because ive been sober before for months and i didnt feel any better at all i was still was depressed and lifeless… i guess people go on antidepressants or some kind of crutch during sobriety to kill the boredom? its so hard to think of a fun life without drugs or beer i remember as a teenager i was happy and had fun without anything but a natural high but hell have things changed. i just cant imagine any adult finding happyness without something like an antidepressant atleast….
Set yourself up for and expect success! It us wonderfully freeing! I’m so pleased to have had help here and reading books, listening to podcasts to get to 100 days af. Feels so good. You wont be leaving anything behind. You’ll be starting new smiling mornings you can look forward to and be proud of.
Welcome wuzzy! I came here 90 days ago. I am sober 90 days and it feels fantastic. This is a wonderful place to look around and find just what you need to help reflect or celebrate or consider. I’m glad you’re here. I’m glad we have here to come to. Peace.
Hey @freedom1, I like to think of what I do get to do, how I do get to feel now that i finally am free. Once you get through day 1, do what you did yesterday again. I learned free and freedom in American sign language and remind myself w smile how good freedom feels. Best wishes every second of the better way.
Fantastic kissingmyrainbow! I’m so happy we are here. I’m fresh w my 40 days af tomorrow. I found a song that clicks for me and made it my celebrate phone alarm for 4 o’clock everyday. It makes me stop and rejoice! Keep enjoying the goodness.
Wtg Narley! I am 30 days af! I feel strong but wary. I know so many fall back. I look forward to continuing on thus best decision and making love to your wife. Wait, what? No, that’s not part of my journey. I’ll go to the gym and have coffee and read books. Yes!
@whichisnice and well done on the 30day mark!!! Keep it up! I also remember being very wary but better too vigilant than not enough! Keep taking it one day at a time and if tempted always ask yourself how you’ll feel the next day if you drink and also how you’ll feel if you don’t! The sense of pride and joy waking up in the morning knowing I got through the previous day is often what motivates me with my current day
I wanted to like wine country better than I did. I like the cast so much. I binged all of Dead to Me today. I loved it. There was tons of wine n whiskey drinking. There was a time I would have had to drink right along w them. Today, it was ginger tea all the way.
Dont like ‘Dead to me’ lol, fell asleep to it. So nah, not a high five to Dead to me, yawn x10 dam i am different aye. Everyone going oh itd so good, janus goes, ahhh nah bullshit lol. I crak myself up
You are fabulous for not drinking wine tonight! My tea kettle and teapot are both old and yuck. So, I am treating myself w a new rainbow finish kettle and bright yellow teapot. I feel it will brighten my kitchen and make it feel special. I’ll still reach in the box in the cabinet for treats especially chocolate, but that’s ok. Best to you all! 🍪🍭🍬
Lawgirl you’re doin great! I’m glad you feel like celebrating. I do too at 18 days. I play a song I dance along or sing along. I celebrate my good mornings. I celebrate finding this site and its inspiring people. You be proud and keep going. Woo!
We are here for the ebb and flow of need and give and share and seek. Lurk or holler rant out loud. I post now while I feel pretty darn good at two weeks, so one day when I am desperate in my emotions, I won’t hesitate to know there is some comfort here. Hugs @dailyoutcomes
