Hi there day 121
Hi, everyone I just made it to day 121 or 4 months. I know I don't post all that much but I try to when I have time. A lot of times someone has already written a post or response which I identify with and usually it is better written than I would anyway . I do read the forum here every day before work and after.
Here is how things have gone for me:
My cravings are mild but still there, nothing too bothersome
My anxiety levels have never been this low in maybe 15 - 20 years.
My BP is almost normal but still a little elevated.
My mood is much better and I feel happier.
My heartburn which was a constant is almost no existent.
I sweat way less.
My concentration is better.
I have fixed many problems around the house now that I am not hung over all the time.
I sleep through the night almost every night.
I have not lost weight yet, actually gained some so my next step would be an exercise routine.
When I do get cravings I read back what I wrote while going through my first few weeks of hell back in January. I know some people have a hard time coming to terms with letting alcohol go for ever but I am glad to see it in the review mirror. It made me sick, lazy, irritable, unreliable, selfish and gross. I don't know why it took me so long to finally realize that but I am glad I did. I don't see any pleasure in making myself any of those anymore ever!
