10 weeks today


Hi

Today is 10 weeks/70 days sober.

What a difference 10 weeks makes , 10 weeks ago I had a dreadful hangover , shakes , terrible anxiety , felt terrible and could not wait for another drink to make me feel ok again.

Today up at 5.30am a lovely morning feeling fantastic , then out to a carboot sale for 7.00am and made £200 by selling all the clutter I have been cleaning out the house over the last few weeks��

There would be no chance I could have done this if I was still drinking !

Thanks everyone

10 weeks is brilliant endoftheday!!!!!!

Plus up at 5.30? On a Sunday? To go sell at a car boot? Go tell yourself 10 weeks ago you'd be doing that!

Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations on 10 weeks! One of the additional benefits of this site is learning the vocubulary in other countries. Carboot sale? Sounds like that equates to a garage sale in my neck of the woods. What is a carboot?

Congratulations.

I believe i was sober on 9 May 2015. I drank until 6 pm on 8 may. Was still drunk on 9 may, but I haven't added any more since.

So, 2 years and 69 days. I crave sometimes, but I remember the hell I suffered.

I suffered serious kindling and PAWS. Now it is way better.

I am a non drinker. It feels good.

Thanks.
