DAY 28 - Moody

Posted 01-26-2019 at 07:29 PM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

I am super bitchy right now. I have been for a couple days. I can't seem to shake these negative vibes. I wish I could. Nobody around me can do anything right. I spend most of the day pretending I am okay, when really I am not. I am unhappy. Today I had envisioned gettin my paints, inks, and canvases out, but I never did. I just could not bring myself to do it. I am on a second day of intermittent fasting, where I can eat until 10:00 pm and fast until the next day at 2:00 pm (fasting for...

Booze alters the brain's ability to produce dopamine. That is why addiction happens. Folks need the booze to feel happy and eventually normal. It takes years to nearly normalize, but the damage is permanent. That is why folks regret relapse after decades of sobriety.

Understanding that keeps me armed against addiction...

DAY 27 - Hang in there!

Posted 01-25-2019 at 09:52 AM by LoveHateMerlot (Diary of Wino)

If you are totally stressed out, nothing is going right, your memories are haunting you, you are not appreciated for all your hard work, and life just currently sucks....

DO NOT DRINK!

You CAN get through the night! All the emotions that are on fire will subside eventually. Feel the pain, feel the burn, so you can wake up in the morning and be PROUD of who you are and what you can accomplish! Don't ever go back to Day 1, ever again.

I am a carpenter and I build things. Men at Lowe's underestimate me. I own a lot of power tools. We bought a house last March. I am currently remodeling our house on top of finishing up real estate school. My husband has a full time job, but he has built a retaining wall in the backyard and helped with some demolition and electrical stuff in a bathroom. Over the summer, I laid hardwood throughout the ENTIRE upstairs. I did it all by myself, I did not get any help at all. I estimated that...
