Maybe I am imagining it, but I swear I can already see a difference in my skin. I had angry, hard acne on my cheeks is already calming down. My eyes also look brighter, they were always slightly red from not sleeping properly. I always had chapped lips from dehydration and they are much better.

As I posted on another thread I had a bit of a test last night after work when my colleague who I always used to drink with after work asked me to join her and I said no and went straight home. There was a few seconds of hesitation, but I fast forwarded to this morning and I am so happy I said no.

Waking up with a clear head, clean mouth and being able to drink a cup of tea without gagging feels amazing!

Two more sleeps until the first week completed!
Well done, skyfullofstars

Keep on - sobriety gets better and better and better!

I've got to go out and make my way
I might get rich you know I might get busted
But my heart keeps calling me backwards
As I get on the 707
Ridin' high I got tears in my eyes
You know you got to go through hell
Before you get to heaven.
