Its 4pm here and getting around the time where my cravings really kick in and normally make a trip to the shops. But I'm sticking to my 24 hours and staying right here!

I hope everyone is having a great day.

Well, I don't have a headache- good.
You all are here--good.
And I feel a cake looming for some folks- very good.

This is my day one and luckily I have had no commitments today and have been able to spend most of my free time exploring threads and binge watching Netflix. My anxiety did rise a bit at the supermarket earlier as I feel all things alcohol are screaming at me lately.

So strategies for my first 24 hours - Netflix, Xbox, Diet Cherryade, mindful colouring, spending time on SR, it's a beautiful day so I might go for a walk (or I might go to the gym.)

I'm so looking forward to my husband getting in from work. I feel great relief when he comes home.

My only concern is getting through this 24 hours and I'm not getting carried away with myself or thinking any further ahead than that.

Keep going everyone.
One day at a time, Mrskw - at times moment by moment - and that's okay.

Staying busy really helps and you have made plans to get through today!!!

Someone is always here; lean on us at any time.

Be kind and gentle to yourself; your body, mind and spirit are undergoing a tremendous adjustment; healing expends and requires energy - listen to your body and rest when you feel tired.

Drink plenty of water.

You are embarking on a wonderful and an important journey.

We are here for you.

Thank you for the wonderful advice and kind words SoberLeigh! I am here for everyone else too. I have been through a number of emotions today but right now I am feeling positive and excited about my journey and helping others with theirs!

You did great and you're stronger than that dang av. Don't listen to the negative thoughts.

8:29 am and I am in for another sober 24 hours.
Looks like spring is here in Seattle too (since last week).
Getting ready for a mighty hot summer.
