Every day is a new day, that's what I keep telling myself. The struggle is real. I'm in deep with this addiction to wine. I am searching for the answer how to turn it off. I feel lucky if I can keep it down to a daily minimum of just one bottle. I pray to God to take this addiction away. Some days I'm a fighter. Other days are a bit more challenging. Hopefully by putting this out there, starting today, I can find a new hope and believe in myself again.

Day Six - Score!

Posted 03-21-2017 at 08:56 PM by LoveHateMerlot

So here are 20 bonuses that I've scored these past 6 days of sobriety:

1) No hangover.
2) Wake up early.
3) Patience.
4) Healthier skin.
5) Energy.
6) Love for myself.
7) Balancing the day's events.
8) Awareness of others' feelings.
9) Strength.
10) Sense of accomplishment.
11) Eyes are brighter and whiter.
12) No liver or pancreas pain.
13) No back pain.
14) More time in the day.
15) Less drama.
16) Eating healthy.
17) Able to recognize my weaknesses.
18) Regular yoga routine.
19) Staying hydrated.
20) Forgiving myself.

Nights are tough, wine is on my mind constantly. My cravings start around 5:00, but I keep busy. I get heart palpitations when it enters my thoughts or sight, wine is everywhere, and I start to get a stomach ache like I'm missing someone. It helps me to look back the past 6 days to really take a look at my accomplishments. I still want wine, I still crave wine, I still have thoughts that slip into my head where I find myself making excuses to have wine. NOPE! Not gonna do it! So there, Merlot.
