Question Had a Tough Time Today on #18

It was a tough day today, having to work through most of my withdrawals (thank God for the two three day weekends) has really phsycally drained me
as I'm getting older (51) my body, is really feeling it. I thought about how good I would feel if I just did a '30' but I haven't and won't as I'm finally ready to rid myself of the awful curse. Anyway, I spent some time on the forums today and that definetly made me feel little better. Anyway, although day 18 is not over yet, I confident I won't use then on to day 19. After that a three day weekend!

Thanks again for helping.

I sure can relate to what you said about being older. We can't put our bodies through that torture any more. No amount of alcohol did it for me in the end. There was nothing left to cling to - because the old feeling I used to get from drinking was never coming back. I wish I hadn't tried so hard to find it again - I ended up with dui's & all sorts of serious trouble.

This won't be you, JFD - you're going to get it right this time & have a whole new life. Keep talking to us - we care.

Thanks, I'll get through it, just seems the like everyday is much longer than when I was using. I do have work and a dog to take up some of the time so that also helps.

Hi ,
I'm on Day 23 and I too am having a very hard day. I want a drink so bad it's not funny. I also am on here to stay straight. Everyone around me drinks. I can't say anything. I don'nt know what to do. I hate my husband for making me feel like this. He drinks all day, takes pills and then wants to kiss me good nite 10 times. It's on purpose. He has cancer so I let it go, but its not easy. I wish I could just go somewhere and be alone for a while, but that would not be good for me either. I just want to get through this.
For the most part I feel better lately. I started to lose the bloating in my body. Craving chocolate like crazy. I stay up later and get up earlier. So all in all it's a good thing. Good luck. YOU CAN DO IT. Lets just work on looking forward to tomarrow.
Diana

Thanks to everyone. Wish I found this site long ago.
