My first day

Hi everybody. Im just on my first day and its been a little rough but the hard part has yet to come. I get off work in about 30 min and my normal routine is to go home and grab a beer out of the fridge.

A long way to go, but every journey has a beginning!!

Hi grassman

I am only on day 2 today, so like you, just trying to take it minute by minute at the moment.

I am trying hard to keep thinking possitive thoughts about where the journey of sobriety will take me... whooohooo, that excites me and helps keep me 'up'

All the best for after work, can you pick up something nice for yourself on the way home? A nice coffee or juice etc... something that will feel like a treat?

Someone suggested that to me yesterday and I got myself a packet of expensive cappacino coffe, yummmmmm.

I hope you keep popping in during the evening for support and to chat.

Grassman, I am on day 3. Step by step, you can get there. Just deal with each moment : )

When and if you feel down, want alcohol thats okay....because I am feeling that way to. Also pretty jittery.............
it will be worth it though.

Good luck, I hope you have success on day one!
