Checking in from California.
I so enjoy reading everyone's posts and appreciate that we can be so honest about our process and experiences.
Hearing about what others are feeling/experiencing is very comforting for me.
I am struck by our core similarities, even leading different lives and locations.
It makes me feel less alone.
Made it to and through Trader Joe's again this weekend with only a fleeting thought about the alcohol aisles. That was big for me.
Yesterday was tough, lots of anxiety and self-recrimination about everything.
I did not drink though and I will not drink today.
Day 25 here.
Happy Monday all.

Hey everyone - I know I haven't posted but as I'm on day 14 (!!!) I'd like to join in on the June class. May this be my last join attempt, may my sobriety stick! With resolve on a daily basis, that's all I've got to do.

Feeling wowed by daily miracles, and so happy to be here for it. Congrats to you all on another sober day.

Make that totally better venuscat. 72 hrs off that med and I am back to my normal self, in all regards . I suspect part of the reason she gave me that med is to lower my heart rate because it was 104 at the office. I was nervous and only 5 days into a quit. I'm sure my pulse was inflated cuz of that. Who knows but my pulse is into the 60's and 70's now without the new med.

Hi dizzybee - nice that you've joined the class. Welcome. Zombie - that sounds more like the voice of resolve! Excellent - you're obviously going to stick with it and I'm so glad. And glad also to hear you're feeling back to normal, Abraham.

Glad you're feeling better Abe!

Day 28 and wow was I wrecked after work. Actually, the entire day I felt pretty crap but that's life. I had started to get a bit of a headache at lunch and it just didn't shift, got home, did the usual getting the dog out. Felt so drained I took an nap which I never do during the working week as I'll probably not sleep well tonight but after it I felt so much better.
Hope everyone has a good sober day :-)

Surprisingly tough day

Hey everyone. I知 on day 45ish (5/25) and was really surprised at how difficult today was. After an active weekend where I felt semi-normal, I felt like a zombie today. And my sweet-tooth resurrected itself with a vengeance. I think that痴 essentially all I致e eaten today. And whoever introduced the Perfect Peanut Butter Protein bars at Starbucks should be fired. Wow. I worked from home today - and by that I mean I watched Seinfeld episodes while answering a few emails. And I just ordered a pizza - I think I知 regressing to college days. After 25 years of secret vodka consumption, and several failed attempts at quitting, I知 now starting to understand that following every good batch of days will come a pay-day where everything falls apart... confusion, mind fog, inability to concentrate, irritability, crazy hunger. I知 reading a book preaching the power of 創ow - I知 not sure I could grasp the concept of 創ow today.

Hoping tomorrow (and every day after) will be better.

Smiles!

Yea, thanks dee and everyone. Now that I stopped the med if it comes back I will at least know its something else. Over the past 10 or so days I lost 5 lbs initially then gained it back in the few days I felt better and after this last stint I am down 10 lbs. Already back up a few pounds. Finally ate normal today, and kept down all of it. Just got back from a nice walleye dinner with the inlaws. My sister and bro in law were drinking beers. I was even talking beer with them. I had water. Then when I got home I realized I had not even thought about the beer. No wishing I had one or anything. I was just conversing and enjoying. While yes its not easy to quit drinking its funny how hard my AV wanted me to think it was, and now I know(learned) better. Going for some chocolate ice cream, with chocolate syrup, nuts, and wip cream. With a glass of chocolate milk. Hey I'm down 8 pounds in the last week I can afford the calories. lol. Have a good night (for me in eastern standard time) or day. June 2019 class. Day 29 in the bag. Officially a month(june 10th-july10) on Wed. Then I can start counting by the month.
