Me too! I can't stop eating. And I get hungry at night to, which I know is the most unhealthy time to eat. I guess it's because when I'm drinking, I'm passed out early, and being awake at a later hour has my body all confused.

I hit day 7 today. I have really had no cravings. I walk past the alcohol isle everytime I go to the market and haven't had any problems so far.

Post My Lesson For Today, This Really Spoke To Me...

Proverbios 23:29-30 (29) Quien tiene el ay? Quien tiene desasosiego? Quien tiene contiendas? Quien tiene preocupacion? Quien tiene heridas sin causa? Quien tiene deslustre de ojos? (30) Los que se quedan largo tiempo con el vino, los que entran en busca de vino mezclado.
(Sorry for the Spanish...doing this from a Spanish Bible...have to do it once so I can look at it and type it correctly in English.)
English:
Proverbs 23:29-30 (29) Who has woe? Who has uneasiness? Who has contentions? Who has concern? Who has wounds for no reason? Who has dullness of eyes? (30) Those staying a long time with the wine, those coming in to search out mixed wine.

And this speaks to me, because it shows me how miserable always spending my time either drinking or looking for ways to drink. It caused me misery in so many ways, bring me woe, uneasiness, just being hurt out of nowhere and not understanding why and so forth.

I see now that without drinking in my life how much better I feel in so many ways because I'm not drinking all the time which was the chief cause of most of my misery.

I don't know if anyone else will get anything out of this or not. This in no way is meant to be offensive, so I apologize to anyone if it is. If it helps you at all that's great, if it doesn't please overlook it and please excuse me for putting it here.

I am THIS CLOSE to just saying F it and getting a bottle of wine. Can't sleep, anxiety thru the roof, pk's been asking me to run her all around town all day, broke for the rest of the month, exhausted, depressed, and just don't care any more. I know it's a bad idea and it would only make things worse, but things are already as 'worse' as they can get and I just want to slide into oblivion. I'm sick of being so aware of everything. I hate my life so why bother saving it? Not much to save...

Hey least,

It's just a half of a day left lets do it!!!

if you don't save your life who will ??? we will, we love you and we are across the U.S.A You have people who care about you all over the states, shoot all over the world. If people all over the world care about you than you are worth saving your life from alcohol.

We truly care and we are in this together!! :praying

((((least))))

Can you call your doctor? I had a hard time learning to let go from expectations of my family. Have you read any of the stickies about co-dependency? I learned a lot about how I got so tied up in wanting and expecting "things" from my family that they just didn't have to give. It wasn't that they witheld from me, they just didn't have it to give.

You've had a rough few days with family issues. Be kind to yourself. Don't drink. Play the tape all the way to the end.

I hope this makes sense. Please know I am thinking of you.

Love,

Lenina

Hi Least - you of all people know the truth about your struggle, and also what the rest of us go through. It's not just about the alcohol remember, it's about making a better life. You're just starting to do that now - even though it doesn't feel like it.

I know how hard the anxiety thing can be (have suffered from this lots for years). It's not easy to explain to someone else, or to yourself. It IS real, but it can also be defeated. If you can deal with it now, you'll probably end up being one of the most successful people you know!

Keep with it....

I am about to force myself to walk the dogs. It may not help the anxiety, but it will be good for my dogs.

Least,

Getting some fresh air and walking the dogs may help. Please keep posting when you get back.

Love,
