Dear EM, (auntie Em?)*
It's not "only" day six, it's Day Six!! The distracting thoughts and restlessness are probably Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome. There's a 'stickie' about it, either here or in the Alcoholism forum at the top of the page. Lots of info for you there. I'm on day twelve right now and still riding the emotional roller coaster and having trouble sleeping, concentrating, etc. But this too shall pass! Please read the stickie on PAWS. If it gets too bad do you have a doctor you can see? Some doctors will prescribe a mild anti anxiety medicine to get you thru it if it gets really bad.
What I do when I get nervous and restless is walk my dogs! They love PAWS cause they get a lot more walks than usual. But you're in school, right? And I'm sure you have a lot more to do than I, as I'm unemployed right now. At any rate, come here to post how you're doing and vent those unpleasant feelings.
I'm proud of you for your six days!! Way to go!!
You'll get there, just take it one day at a time!
lots of love and encouragement,

my dogs than live in a castle without
