Day 2 is hard

Of course I made it through Day 2 and thought how proud of myself I was, I should reward myself with something to drink. Didn't go to the liquor store though so I conquered that battle. Got into a fight with husband because he asked me what I wanted to do for my birthday and I said I wanted a bottle of wine. Of course, wanting it and having it are 2 different things but really, I shouldn't have responded that way. Anyways, still hanging a thread but I'm here.

Congratulations on making it through day 2! You should try to reward yourself with something positive like a manicure and pedicure, nice soak in the tub, buy a new book to read or a new CD to listen to. They will help you feel good about yourself, and will last a lot longer.

I actually did have a soak in the tub, it helped. The very cool thing about this message board is that nobody is surprised about things like "liquor store mental battles". Something that I feel like noone in my real life would understand. Thanks for the support.

First couple of days are the hardest. Keep it up. The people in my life didn't understand the alchol problem. I was glad when I found this site. Lots of similar stories and feelings. Keep reading and posting.

Good for you day 2, keep it goin, on day 10, and just gettin the hang of this sobriety,
or so i think!, each persons different in times and days which are hardest to get through
i think, i hope am not wrong in sayin when you get through a real hard night of pangs
of temptation... Next morn you wake up real strong with renewed confidence you can
stay the course... This is what im findin anyhow.

Congrats on day 3
Keep an even temper can be difficult in the early days, but things will even out

Keep the faith
