Five weeks and going for ten...

Yep, that's ME I'm talking about. Five weeks clean as of today - exactly. Two weeks longer than I've ever stayed of the booze. Walked past shelves of liquor yesterday, and afterwards, was happily amazed at how I did not pause or gaze with longing or stood there salivating...
It gets easier each day, it really does.
This morning, after brushing my teeth, I stood in front of the mirror and inspected my tongue. Gods, I though - after a second, careful look - that can't be yours. Where's the greenish-yellow fur no toothbrush could get rid off? The stuff that tastes like someone took a dump in your mouth while you were drunk and passed out...
And do you know what I did? I kissed the girl. And she tasted GOOD!

It really does get better and better, doesn't it?! The key moment for me was when I stopped trying to convince myself that life was better sober, and started to accept and understand that it was actually true.

There are ups and downs in "daily life", but I've found mostly ups since quitting

Congrats corrie, you have certainly come a long way in 5 weeks. It's not surprising really though - when you look back you've been spending a lot of time and effort on staying sober, and you are seeing the results of that. Keep it up!

Nice work on 5 weeks, Iím at seven today, and I agree it does get easier. Because we are far from the withdrawal hump now, we have hit a stride with our arms swinging, easy breathing..thank heaven the worst is behind us and we are sober! This is what I have always wanted and here it is, feels like a miracle, doesnít it?
