You'll find lots of kindered spirits here benjiboy, feel free to hang your hat in this gang as long as you want. Its good your not finding it too difficult, I know what its like to avoid some friends as well. Theres a couple of people I try to avoid socialising with since I stopped drinking cos I know where it could lead. Feel a bit guilty about it but I kind of just stay out of their way rather than explain things to them, just seems easier.

Your not "only on day 7", a weeks pretty good, well done, just keep hanging in there.

Day 24 done for me, boredum was my biggest enemy today, was raining all day after the sun of yesterday meaning we were inside most of the day. Through it though and really just caught myself wanting a drink a couple of times. Focus Focus Focus.

All the best everyone

I just love the focus of this thread. it's nice that I can say I have graded from the less than 2 weeks club. pulling out the calendar...counting days now...and today is my 21st day.

I'm feeling some stronger pulls towards using again. this was noticable yesterday. I need to take some action. But so far today I have not. it's been business as usual...cigarettes, coffee, ipod, being lazy.

playing it easy isn't going to get it. I have to take some action.

first thing...I'll follow through with my to do list this morning
2nd....I will care about my work performance, after this break
3rd...I will eat a healthy, early lunch
4th....I will follow through with another item on to do list at lunch
5th afterr lunch I will take pride in my lunch
6TH I will have a plan after work in the idle time between work and my sons activity that I'm attending tonight
7th I will have a plan after that activity
8th I will go home and wind down
9th I will be able to sleep because I will be satisfied with the course of today
10th I will congradulate myself for completing 3 weeks of clean time

Just checking in for day 25, another day down.

Last week I was getting a buzz out of feeling well, been feeling flat last couple of days.

Staying sober doesn't give you the instant hit that finishing work and coming home and pouring a drink does. Working through it but found it harder tonight than I have coming home from work the last week or so.

Just got to remember that the feeling I'm craving only lasts a small while before hours of waiting for it again, don't want to go back there.

Keep hanging in there with me everyone

>>Keep hanging in there with me everyone<<

Here I am with ya! Day 26...not that it has been easy, but I am pleased that I had to run to the calendar just now to remember the exact day..almost a month, incredible. Fighting alternating anxiety and depression, and daily cravings...but still here. As someone said, a bit too much in my head lately. But I don't miss the hangovers at all!!!!!!

Going on Day 16 here!

Just had my first 3 day holiday weekend (Memorial Day) sober. It was a struggle, had to leave a softball game turned drinking party, but alas; it was nice not having regrets or hangovers!!

Hey Benjiboy - Don't thank me for setting the pace - Negman and Fizzywater are the trend setters. I'm just following the path. Day 21 for me and that makes 3 weeks, which is kind of special to me as I haven't gone past 3 weeks in years. I had kind of a breakdown last night and the depression was overwhelming. I am so much better. Maybe just needed a good cry. Keep the throttle in forward everyone and let's ride this together!!

I made it home. another day clean. it didn't seem worth it a few times...and I had some urges and some emotional pain from rejection, but I made it through and right now i am satisfied with the day. I was up to the challenges of this day and will go to sleep clean and sober.

Good Morning...nice thread ya got working here, lots of positivity.

I'm on day 3 w/ no oxy. I had about a 100-200mg habit. It has been rough. It's been going on for a year or so and I just can't deal. I am wd'ing at home CT. Probably harder but if I can get through today I think I can make it. Last time I had a few weeks and I caved. I gave myself a reward. Smart huh ?

I'm going to find a meeting today, hopefully I can muster the physical ability to get there, and that may help.

Good luck to you all...I need strength
