Day 6

Well, made it through the weekend and have to say day 5 was probably the worst yet as far as anxiety, feeling "off balance", headaches, and generally in a fog. Not drinking is actually the easy part compared to the crappy feelings

Hoping day 7 forward will be better. Best wishes to everyone else here and thanks for the encouragement along the way

Hi Scott. Glad you checked in. I know we say it all the time, but it does get much better as you go along. I wasn't very happy those first few weeks. Finally, the fog cleared and the sun began to come out. It actually took a few months to really feel good, but every day was a bit better than the last.

Proud of you for reaching Day 6 - we all understand how hard it is.

A little voice deep inside me said, "Hello, I am here." It was a small voice, & sounded as if it were buried underneath the cushions of my couch. It was my soul...I had forgotten it.

Scott, 6 days? You are FANTASTIC. Congratulations.

Success is making yourself do the thing you need to do when you need to do it whether you like it or not.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.
