Moving forward on day 4, here's hoping for a better day. 🙂

So sorry to hear of your loss Owl - sending my deepest sympathies XXX

Its a frosty morning here today - after the amount of munchies I ate last night though I'm going to get kitted up for a little run. After that going to make myself a lasagne. Day 4 today and I'm working this afternoon until midnight so will definitely make it to Day 5.

Its a strange feeling though sleeping well but waking up still tired.

Hope you al have a successful and enjoyable Wednesday - much love X

So day 8, this is my favorite part of the day now. My kid is in 8th grade and is going to career day. He told me 10 minutes before we left he was supposed to dress nice. I had already laid him out a sweatshirt and jeans.... he said don't worry I'll take care of it. He came back out of his room in a different sweatshirt "roll eyes". Anyway he had to take money to buy a pop and snacks. I gave him a little extra. He said he will use it to buy someone else something that doesn't have enough money. So that made me happy... . Have a sober day everyone!!! - Susan

This is a good place to start - think about the changes you need to make and the support around to help you stick to those changes

https://www.soberrecovery.com/forums...very-plan.html (What exactly is a recovery plan?)

if you're not feeling well can you send the kids to footy in a cab or something?

Hi Lovehoops, Lou and Starting...welcome.

Day 3 here for me. I'm home and feeling a bit depressed. It's a pretty yucky cold rainy day here and I have quite a bit of work to do. I'm tempted to drink, but I'm instead trying to work at simply accepting my feelings and being ok with them as opposed to seeking relief in the immediate buzz from alcohol. I dislike fall/winter but did enjoy the cozy "stuck at home on a gray day so I'll just have a few drinks to make it even more cozy" feeling.

So I'm pressing fast forward and thinking about how it would turn out if I did that.... I'd become massively unproductive and get next to nothing accomplished. A few may or may not turn into a few more and then I'd likely bust out the phone and start getting too chatty, and ultimately end up feeling like complete physical and mental crap a few hours later.

If I don't drink...I'll have another day in the books toward my goal of better health, weight loss, more stable moods. I'll get stuff done. I won't wake up feeling dehydrated and dizzy. I'll have a small sense of accomplishment.

I'm not going to drink today.

Welcome Lovehoops, Loui and Startingover!

Linners- I am also on Day 3. It is sunny and warm in my parts... and I also have had some crazy thoughts/urges. But I read the rest of your post and it was a wonderful reminder that I have been down that dead end road too too many times. So thank you!

Loui- I hear you on that crazy googling. I am so tired of looking up alcohol related pains/ symptoms. My body already feels like it is healing. Have a wonderful evening.

Hi all.
I'm here, just barely. Seems I have the stomach bug that has been going around.
Day 5. No drinking for me.

Good evening everyone, so proud of all of us!! I had to go grocery shopping. I looked at the wine aisle and zoomed on by. I told the checkout guy that although I had quit my wine, I was still working on the cigarettes! He wanted to know why on the wine because it's good for you! I said not when you drink the whole bottle. He said I just needed someone to share it with. I thought buddy if you only knew....

Hi peeps. Looks like I missed a lot yesterday! Hi new people

I'm really bad with remembering names and news so apologies about that but it seems that there's been good progress for everyone. For those on day one, day one is better than a zero (still drinking) day.

Owl sorry to hear of you loss. My condolences.

I hope those in the group with the stomach bug feel better soon. And please don't pass it on to the rest of the class. I was sick enough with withdrawals the first few days.

I went to 2 AA meetings yesterday and sold my house in between is why I was MIA. Two weeks for me today. Yes, I am a day counter. I plan on hitting an AA meeting at 8pm unless my bf brings a deer home in which case butchering takes precedence.
