I made it to 30 Days!

I am feeling so clear headed and positive now... what a difference from the cycle of booze/self-hatred/more booze/more self-hatred.

For those at 1 or 2 weeks and thinking they might be able to drink in moderation, don't. Wait at least until 30 days, I think it wasn't until about 3 weeks in that I really started feeling genuinely clear headed and vaguely healthy.

I am still missing having an after work beer or a wine (or 10) with dinner, but certainly not missing the hang-overs and self-loathing.

If this is a life sober, then I am all for it. But I am still treading lightly, cautious that I could drop the ball anytime.

So far so good.

Larry..3 weeks was my turning point too..I really started to notice really positive changes and was at the point where I wanted to continue to be sober more than I wanted to drink..I still feel that sobriety has to be the #1 positive life change. Way to go on your 30 days Mister!
