In 10 minutes it will be 1 week since my last drink!

I am feeling even better today.... still a few tummy issues but my body is also adjusting to being back on food and not mostly booze... I am trying to drink lots of tea (found a great herbal tea that is to promote healthy livers) and water and eat foods high in anti-oxidants and other foods good for the liver... just to get it strong again. No signs of damage but I would feel better babying it for awhile, lol... I had a more energy today that even yesterday.... slept great last night... THIS BEING SOBER THING ROCKS!!!!

Hi Happy, Keep up the great work! It is so great to wake up in the morning clear headed! The tea sounds really good. Water with lemon helped my stomach and so did chamomile tea, actually. My first 2 weeks of sobriety I slept a lot, looked foward to sleeping, it was so restorative. Take it day at a time!

Congrats on one week sober! Yes, being sober really rocks! So nice to start feeling good again and to wake up without regrets and feeling horrible.
