The first 30 days


I don't think I ever in my life quit drinking for 30days.

What I do know is I haven't drank since SUNDAY, and I have been eating copious amounts of take out food for the last FIVE DAYS

Im SOBER, and now IM FAT. Awesome

Friday is here, and I have alienated myself from the DRINKING CREW so I am holed up watching Movies at my place.

I feel like I need to CUT everyone off if Im going to try to attempt to not drink.

IT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE

IMO do what you must to not drink. Get out and go to a meeting perhaps. You can cut yourself off from your drinking buddies if that's what you need to do-a lot of people have issues with this, your certainly not alone.
Just don't drink

Clean the house, go to the car wash, go shopping, walking, cooking, out for food, get a dog, build a model, learn how to make and edit great videos and post them on youtube, make a blog and write. Endless stuff you can do.

Day 21 for me and despite abandoning my drinking buddies, I think it's more than worth it because every area of my life has improved: job, health, family (real family - not the drinking friends kind) and I am willing to give up those toxic friendships to gain everything else. Some will disagree but I don't think that I, personally, can have it both ways. That is to say, get black out drunk daily and maintain/improve my career/health/family-relationships.

It's possible - there's hundreds of people here as proof of that.

It's not easy - and sometimes it can be really difficult - and it really does involve changes...but it's still worth it to me.

I gave up alcohol and got my life back - that was more than a fair swap to me.

Lean on the support you'll find here SNW - do you have any real life support as well?

It's not impossible. You can do it! It will get better. Hang in there.

Day 58 for me. The first week was the hardest, I found, but things got better and better and by now I'm feeling pretty good.

One thing I did to get me through the beginning was to imagine I had a very wise sponsor, and would ask him what I should do when confronted with a decision. He'd say something like, "First things first," or "easy does it."

If you can't imagine a wise sponsor you might want to attend AA and get an actual person, or alternatively try RR, which is what I used, in addition to my imaginary friend.

Things do get better - you can do it!
