Talking 8 days! YES!!

Woo, just wanted to share my accomplishment with y'all! The support this forum offers has been invaluable so far. It's so scary to think "I will never drink again." I guess that's why they say one day at a time, right? At this point, my mind is beginning to clear and my body feels a little bit better. My place is still trashed from a long time of booze related neglect, my friends are still wary, and I still have a lot of work to do but I am excited about the future.

8 days is an awesome accomplishment! Congratulations!

All those one days at a time make for longer term sobriety that turns into a life in recovery if we continue working on it. Way to go!

Great job! I'm a couple days behind you, and I've also felt the daunting prospect of "never drinking again forever and ever." I thought about occasions in the future, like my wedding, or a graduation, where I may want to drink, and then I think, "Will I be able to do it?"

But then I realize I can't even think about things that haven't happened yet. I'm gonna make sure that when my head hits the pillow tonight no booze has touched these lips since I woke up. And tomorrow, I'm gonna do the exact same thing.

Keep up the good work!

Don't say you'll never drink again. Just say, you won't drink right now.....tomorrow, maybe, but not right now.

Glad you are here!

SoFar, I'm happy to read that!

I have a few photographs (which I won't share, ha ha) to remind me of "booze-related neglect." It looked like a cyclone had been through my place (again), and I was a relief team of one.

Congratulations on 8 days SSF!

The one day at a time thing really works - the only day you can do anything about is today - yesterdays gone and tomorrows not here yet - just go with that...

pretty soon you'll just be...living your life
