I actually feel sleepy...I can't remember the last time I felt that. Usually I pass out on the couch or in bed, never having that feeling.

I like it

I've had sleep issues forever. Cpap and supplements have helped me. Still wake up 2-3 times

Right that's my weekend sorted. Gym then doctor early Saturday morning then I've just this minute arranged to meet a potential client for a business meeting at 9 am on Sunday. Two important appointment neither of which I want to be feeling worse for wear at.

It's nearly 9pm here and I'm just in from work. I'm eating and about to go to bed. First sober Friday in months

Morning everyone. I did not sleep well last night, but that's expected this early in recovery. Staying up today so hopefully I'll pass out from exhaustion tonight.

Day 4 today. Will be a tough weekend but staying strong and I will be back on here. I will power through this weekend and stay busy. Terrible night sleep last night. Haven't slept well in a few nights but at least I wake up knowing I didn't have a drink the night before

Morning All

Happy Friday. My daughter is with her Dad today so its going to be a long and lonely day/evening. I have to fill it up. So this morning yoga, I'll walk the doggies before it gets hot (last gasp of summer I'm hoping). I have been meaning to apply for volunteer opps so that is what I'll do today until my 3;30 apt. I keep thinking of an AA meeting but I've been to all of them in my area and just haven't found the one. I've been cycling through them for years. We'll see.

Last night I saw Trainwreck. Crude but funny and actually touching. It made me a bit down however because I'm a trainwreck, lost my bf because of it, and there's been no happy ending for me. Call the Wahhhbulance right? But I came home and responded to the email from exbf. It was very brief, didn't address the 'I still love and care for you' comment. Just thanked him and asked him to send me a pic of his new puppy. Ugh. I knew I shouldn't have. I didn't do anything monumentally stupid or anything but I realize it was just giving into my addiction to him. I couldn't drink so I turned to my other addiction. There is no way getting back together with him will be healthy for me. I have a long way to go.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning, everyone! Just checking in. I slept better last night, but still woke up several times. I'm eagerly anticipating that sober sleep that I enjoyed for a few months, the one where you bed just hits the pillow and you fall asleep, waking with the alarm. Ah....it is heaven. I hope it comes soon.

Fricka, I'll be thinking good thoughts for you. Being alone is hard. It sounds like you have a good plan. Sounds like you know what to do with the exbf too. Doesn't make it easier, but it is good you know that. I had an ex that I broke up with and then stayed emotionally connected to for way too long. Like you, people can be another addiction for me. Treat yourself with gentleness and kindness today, 'kay?

Have a great Friday everyone!

Day three for me. Night sweats and insomnia abound for me, but luckily that's about it. I don't regret waking up sober and love the feeling of memory the night before. My AV can be strong, but I know I'm always stronger. Hang in there, everyone. Gonna be a bumpy ride, but totally worth it!

Good Morning everyone. Sleep seems to be a common theme with a lot of us. I had an awful drinking dream last night. Actually woke up with all the regret as if I had consumed the vodka pint in my dream. Took me a few minutes to realize that it was just a dream, but haven't been able to shake the funky mood it put me in. Taking the kiddos to the high school football game tonight. Glad I'm doing that hangover free and without all the usual impatience because I would rather be home drinking. We really aren't that into football, but my daughter wants to be in the marching band and I want her to know what is involved. I'll be on later, have a great day!
