17 days , a little tougher than I thought

Weekend was rough as I don't believe I have watched college football without 12 beers in a long time (10 years) I think I may have been a little deeper in this addiction than I realized. I am feeling overall spurts of brilliance during the day, however, when I am around a lot of drinking I find myself becoming very, very quiet. I have never been a huge fan of large crowds but I don't want to become a complete introvert. I do seem to have a little more tension mixed in with feelings of ...damn this feels good. Normal?

Definitely normal...... We've been conditioned to accompany so many things with alcohol and the first time we do something without it, it feels strange. Hang in there, though...... it really does get better. I thought about drinking constantly at first and had to lean on the good people here to stay motivated.

Congrats on day 17 - keep up the good work!

Oh for sure, and the denial is pretty usual too. My denial was profound.

Congratulations on 17 days sober. I couldn't be around alcohol or people drinking alcohol for quite a long time when I stopped drinking, but it may work for you.
