Hello. Again....

Hi guys!

I was class of May and fell of the wagon, so I'm back! Today is my first day! (Again) My issue - weekend binge drinker extraordinaire.

Day 3, and my final day of a 7-day stretch in work. Couple of days off after this and then just the one day in before a week off. This is where I really have to watch myself, because if I'm off I'm my own worst enemy. I plan to spend as much time as possible with my wife and daughter, and to stay as strong as possible and ignore the AV.

Ready for another 24, guys? Good luck!

Nearing the end of day 7 for me, getting ready to go out for dinner. Cannot believe it has been a week already, am feeling so much better now than the first few days.

Started working out again. Huge difference today. Feel good.
First sober birthday today !! Been 15-20 yrs probably. Taking birthday holiday off on Friday.( never before had a job with that day off as a floating holiday. )
Thursday Eve after work, meeting up with counselor.
Lining up to be a positive week. ( my point of view is better ).
Good day for us all I'm praying.

Happy bday JL. Awesome that you're spending it sober. Day 8 for me. Busy day coming to a close. Looking forward to spending the rest of the week and weekend hangover free. Ahhh such a great feeling!

Day 7 for me and the rest of the week will be a huge test. My husband is out of town and already I'm planning things. I just keep praying to God to keep me sober and I'm so grateful to you all and SR. I'll be taking it minute by minute and post often. Hopefully I'll make a meeting today or maybe two . Anyways enough rambling. Keep up the good work everyone!!!! Even if you're back at day 1 it doesn't matter. What matters is you came back here. You didn't give up!!!!! Just take it one day at a time.

Hi New here . Been sober as of July 13. Hope I am doing this right. So glad to have somewhere to have support from you who have been here before. Much of the WD is going away as I have tapered since July 8. Was on quite the binge before that. Am still anxious and moody. Hoping to get through another day.

Day 11 begins. Yesterday was rough with cravings. Nothing physical. It was the AV slipping in advice throughout the day. Distracted myself and waited them out. Had 3 smokes. Terrible regression. I just can't get rid of my smokes. Going to get a physical this week and request chantix to quit smoking. On the bright side I have had 4 smokes in 11 days which is roughly 2% of the amount I would normally smoke. Have a great day!!
