60 Days for BBR

I’ve made it to day 60 and I feel great! Not that it’s been easy, but it has been getting easier as the time goes by.

I have been using SR for support. I have been reading everyday, though I don’t post very often. The 1st thing I do when I get home from work is read all the new messages in this Newcomer’s Forum and find many of the threads very motivating. It also provides a change of routine… important and helpful, as that’s the time when I would normally start drinking.

Last time I quit, about 2 years ago, I had a relapse at around 3 months. The mind started playing tricks like telling me “see… you don’t have a real problem… you can quit if you want and you’ve proved it” Pretty soon it was saying “ it’s OK if you only have a few while you’re on vacation… right?” It wasn’t long before I was looking for other excuses to drink and before I knew it I was back to a daily routine.

This time I know I have a real problem… I proved it the last time I relapsed, so it’s been easier to ignore the voice… and as a result it seems to be less intense and less frequent. I know it's a lie!

I am truly enjoying life more being sober than I did when I was drinking. Take care all and thanks again for the support.

60 days, congratulations!

So,... ignoring the voice makes it go away more? Hmmm. Thank you, I'm going to try that.

Take care,

Congratulations on 60 days. Reading about the misery alcohol causes is a good reminder. It is very easy to forget particularly when this disease is so cunning.
