slept 3 hours but it doesn't matter.

couldn't sleep. It doesn't matter because i'm sober, and in half an hour my day of work has finished, i'm gonna rest for an hour, eat, to the gym, read a book, meditate (was too tired this morning) and get a good nights rest.

it's all good.

In a week or so i'll sleep better,
Practice not-doing,
and everything will fall into place.

Your post reminded me of a little insight I had in early sobriety: that I'd always reached for the quick solution (followed by pain). Now I can choose to go through a little pain and live into the solution.

Keep hanging in there!! It definitely gets better.

Yea for sobriety! lol
You're right. Being sober is more important than one night's sleep.

I love the Buddha quotes!
