7:00 am

The healing circle was nice last night but then I came home and fed my body junk (bread, cheese, chocolates) right before I got into bed. I feel awful this morning. In tears, irritable, tired. It's my husband's birthday and I could barely muster up a hug for him when I saw him.

I can't take these ups and downs anymore.
I am wondering when I am going to take my life to the next level- what am I waiting for? Hasn't this way gotten old already?

I am considering taking a yoga teacher training. Just need to find one that works with my schedule. I think it will change my life. Also going to do my Reiki Master class soon- just need to save up a bit more. But really, I just want to learn to enjoy each day regardless of my feelings and emotions. I'm so tired of allowing them to dictate the outcome of my day.

Here for 24 more hours of freedom from alcohol. Can't wait to be able to stop depending on food for numbing these huge emotions sobriety has allowed me to feel.

I turned all the notifications off on my phone because it was beeping or buzzing or otherwise distracting me almost every hour of the day.

This meant I nearly missed my 7th day sober celebration. In 6 hours from the time of posting I will be alcohol free for 7 days and I've barely thought about drinking for most of that 7 days.

I mean, go me, but should I be concerned that it's not on my mind all the time so early into my recovery?

24 more for me please and congratulations to anyone celebrating a milestone today.

Congrats on 7 days Mystified. I wouldn’t over analyze things at all right now. Recovery is not linear so you will definitely see cravings come and go. Enjoy each moment and day that passes with ease and be prepared for when the cravings do arrive so you are not thrown off by them. You are doing great!!
