Keep up the good work. I'm still new to this recovery thing myself. I'm on day 22 myself recovering from alcohol. Everyday I feel a little bit better. The insomnia and mood swings you are feeling are bound to get better.

CONGRATS!

Hi promethis

I had to look at it this way - it took me years to get to the point where I was beaten and wanted to quit - it's probably going to take a little more than 17 days to shake off the effects of all those years...and I'm sure you get that too.

There is this thing called PAWs too - if you haven't heard about it, it might be worth checking out...

Congrats on 17 days, keep up the good work. I know where your comming from, I have 8 weeks and still feel like I'm not with it. Changes will not happen overnight, hang in there
