2 weeks sober and feeling good!
Hey all - back to update in the hopes that my experiences so far will help someone else.
- I've been going to aa meetings everyday (well I've missed like 2 - but you get the idea)
- I've thrown myself into my work.
- I've made time to play with my kids as opposed to hanging out with a 12 pack and espn.
- Everyday I try to accomplish one of the things I was going to 'do tomorrow'. No matter how minor the task - if I go for it I stay busy and feel accomplished.
I still have alcohol cravings - ironically especially after I accomplish one of the tasks I performed to keep busy and not think about alcohol. But I'm learning to live my life sober and it's still early in my recovery.
Thanks for everybody out there posting their own experiences - this website is a true inspiration and a comfort when I'm feeling alone.
