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.
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!
Try to take good care of you right now. Get through the ne t right thing, rest and be kind to yourself. I, too, know the hardships of many cancer diagnoses and alcohol addictions around me. But I’ve continued on. Now I’m at 16 days and feel strong and hopeful. You will too. You’ll be proud that you continued each day. 🧡
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
I’ve been noticing the feeling of thanks in the morning that I didn’t drink the previous day. The thing that really occurred to me this morning was my normal overnite breath. Gone is the alcohol laden malodorous fume that would inhabit my breath. Ahhh.
Today is 12 days af and I’m very happy about that. It is my birthday today and I decided to have some dark chocolate toffee and some licorice jelly beans, fudge and then some chocolate almond milk. I think I’m done but I sure enjoyed all that sugar. Tomorrow another sober celebration with friends and probably too much food in general then back to healthy nutrition. No matter what kind of pretty glass or whatever, I want no alcohol. I hope that stays as strong as it feels today. I keep reading about the very possible difficult times I may face. I’ll keep reading. Thanks everyone! I started out this morning walking in wildflowers. I’m a lucky woman making better choices.
