Day 2

Today I had a few test of my stress triggers, freak accidents (how did my hair oddly get into an electrical outlet while fixing the kitchen sink...it was a "shocking " experience and a few other items. But I thought of my triggers, how I use to handle it, and felt strong to handle it in a new way as I plan out my new life.

As I detox, I tell myself - yeah this sucks, but I think of how ill my mom was going thru cancer and chemo.

Tomorrow will be my second Friday without drinking. Already starting to feel the urge... did fine this past week but the psychological feeling of capping the work week with a beverage is creeping up again.

I just caught up reading your posts... welcome to SR, it's great to meet you.

Congrats to everyone on their milestones, you're doing great. One day at a time, baby steps in the right direction.

OscarDoes, glad you're ok after your 'shocking' experience.

Jlg, have a good and sober day with your cat.

Peanut, congrats on day 3, you can do it!

Day 5 here. Looking forward to a nice quiet sober weekend and going out running tomorrow and Sunday, something I'd neglected during the last few weeks. Have a great day everyone and keep marching on! NS

I'm back to day one. I fought with my ex 3 hours and heard everything wrong with me since childhood. My dad thinks he is doing it on purpose so he can take over and become my carer. I have bipolar. Plus the yelling there is yelling and insane yelling and this was insane. I don't know how his past wives didn't drink themselves to death. One of them did and is as dead as a door mat. I can see why now.

Hey, friends! Another weekend approaching....I used to dread them but now I enjoy it. Gives me a chance to find something else to do! I still get scared too, though. The stupid AV can sneak in outta nowhere.....but I will keep my guard up and not drink today!

Hugs to everyone ~ We've got this!

I don;t think anythings going to change until you change your actions and your responses sweetichick.

Your ex has everything to gain in keeping things exactly as they are.

Looks like there are a bunch of us working hard for our well-being. I love when others are posting "Go Marchers!" We all want to march forward.

When I first started looking at this site I did not really believe that the days would get easier as I progressed through this process of getting alcohol out of my body and out of my mind (constant negative thoughts) but they do get better. Thanks so much to all of you who post that have been helping all of us newbies. Having a place to go where you do not feel like you are the only one going through this really helps.

I found it really helpful so far to just take one day at a time and not worry about tomorrow. Well, at least as much as I can. One day, or one hour, is moving in the right direction. We can march forward together!

Thanks for all of your posts!

Good morning everyone! Day 2 for me. I'm with my husband and daughter's family in Florida for a week. Actually it came at a good time because my habit is to drink wine after work for the evening. I'll go back and read averything.

Have a good sober day everyone!

Hi everyone, I'm a newcomer on day 1 after 10 years of alcoholism and two different 2 year stretches of sobriety. I appreciate all your posts and look forward to keeping up with this community.

Also, technical question: How do I subscribe to this thread? (I'm using a smartphone and I haven't seen any link or anything)
