23rd day of sobriety - it only gets better

I have so much more energy than those many mornings when I woke up hung-over, wondering how I got home and what I might have said/not said the night before. Worst of all was the terrible unfocused depression and shame that always followed the day after too many drinks. The anxiety was unbearable.

Why would I start drinking again? I won't.

Have a gr8 day!

Isn't it a wonderful gift. Wait until you hit 90 days , you won't believe it!

I can so relate to not having to worry about and live with the consequences of the drunken escapades of the night before! I don't miss that AT ALL! I didn't realize how much of my time was spent dealing with that stuff until I stopped drinking....what a body and brain drain.

I love posts like this! Great job. I can totally relate the feeling of laying in bed trying to put back the pieces from the night before - what I said, was I argumentative, belligerent, etc. Yuk. Keep it up!

I might add another thing I don't miss - shaky hands trying to drink that first cup of coffee the morning
