Now entering day 13 - VERY VERY IRRITABLE!!

My quit date: 3/12/13 12:01 AM
I have been alcohol free for 12 days 11 hours 41 minutes and 58 seconds!
I did not spend $196.02 on beer!
I did not drink 99 cans of beer, and 8 glasses of beer at the bar!

Yesterday (Saturday) I was at the peak of irritability and I suspect my AV is seriously messing with my head!!

I had a pounding headache even after taking a couple aspirins and am developing various pains in my muscles, not sure why!!

I blew up at a co-worker for a pretty minimal thing. I have always been a bit short-fused but this was rather out of the blue.

Anyone know of some resources for anger management?

I so wanted to just get a 6 pak and curl up with a movie and drink. Thankfully I didn't, and once I got home I ate something and felt a bit better.

A buddy of mine came over and I didn't get mad at him, but did find I was trying to hasten the conversation, completing sentences for him etc.

I am also rather bummed out by a new situation where my ex g/f (we split on very good terms, (I relocated to a new city and she was very agreeable to it etc), has decided to dis-continue me from her life. I am very sad about this, I really like her and I thought that our friendship would always be in tact.

I don't know what brought this on, perhaps she found another guy, which I would give her my blessings for!! I know she is under stress having to move etc, but I dunno, just feel a little lost.

Anyhow, today is a new day, still have the headache, don't have to work so thats cool.

Ok rant over haha

You are not at all alone in this. Your beast is trying to be sly.. It is a favorite trick of my beast as well. Finally I have accepted that I am just "getting better" and the only thing that can make the exhaustion, irritability, so-mad-at-everything-right-now feeling any better is not to drink. I am sure we will both be perkier soon. Jess
