Day 3

Today is the morning of day three and last night was a bit rough. My husband was out at an Al-anon meeting and I was by myself. Usually I would consider this "me time" and crack open a bottle of wine. Instead I worked out, did laundry and drank soda. I wanted a drink badly. I felt nervous and full of anxiety. Spoke to my girlfriend today and she is bringing me to my first AA meeting. Wish me luck! I am so nervous!

Sounds like a productive evening

Each time you get through those wants for drinks it gets easier. Keep at it!

Great job, for me first couple days was a little difficult after 1 week I kinda stopped thinking about it. It's only been 16 days now but I feel like it was the best change I ever made in my life I feel so much more alive now.

Congrats on day 3. And so great you fought the urge to drink. Now that you know you can do it, remember the next time it creeps up on you.

Let us know how your first meeting went. I hope you find some help there

Day 3 for me too, Titi! Proud of you for taking a leap over a vulnerable moment with laundry and a work out! It's staying strong in those small moments that add up to big victories.

Good luck at your meeting!

Best, Sam

The meeting was wonderful and scary. I was able to hear stories just like mine and made me truly realize I am not alone. What a comforting thought! To know I have support whenever I need it! I am going to another meeting tomorrow night and Sunday morning. Day four! Thanks for all the support! And I'm here for all of you too!! xoxxoxo

that's exactly how I felt when I went to meetings, especially in the beginning. I thought AA would be a bunch of old men in dirty raincoats. But I tell you, some of the stories I heard really hit home. Plus, people were so funny. I needed some of those belly laughs.
