Re-committing to myself

Day 1 for me again.
I have been not doing well lately when it comes to staying sober. I came up with tons of reasons to drink - and none not to.
Today though I have had enough: I know I don't have to live this way, I'm tired of feeling bad (physically and emotionally), I'm tired of the look on my husbands face when alcohol is mentioned, and I've turned into a lousy pet owner.
You all know that my list could go on and on...
I am making a promise to myself, to not drink - I just can't take this anymore!

Is anyone else on Day 1?

...I quit having day one's years ago.
And hope this will be your final one too.

Do you have a plan?

JPat - I am glad that you made it back, I've missed you!

I'm not on day one, but I am here to support you however I can. :ghug3

Hi JPat - and welcome back!! Why don't you go on the September thread and/or the under 2 weeks to get some support and to also be accountable to a group who are trying for the same thing and also on their first few weeks of sobriety? I find my July Class and under 60 day thread help keep me accountable, which I deperately need sometimes.

Hi Jen,

I have been wondering where you were and thinking about you. Hang in there. We can do this.
