Coming back around again

Seven days sober. Tomorrow I will wake up sober and I got some much needed sleep last night. Wrote part of a paper in the library today, but I do feel lonely and miss people. Thinking of a way I can reward my self for going a week. Maybe I will get some ice cream. I still have 55 pages to write and I am trying not to be scared. I hope everyone on SR is having a good weekend.

I love ice cream. And now I can indulge occasionally because I haven't wasted calories on alcohol.

Yea three twenty page papers. Due in a week then one a week later. Trying to focus and get them done. Thanks for the support good people. My anxiety is high because of these assignments and I drank to not feel nervous. So trying to be mentally strong and push through. This is going to be one of the most sleep deprived weeks ever. Have a good night all.

Nine days of sobriety but still unable to write. But if I was drinking I know I really couldn't write. I did read today and I hope to write some after I go grocery shopping. Been napping a lot and giving my body some rest. I'm so scared about all this writing, I feel like a moron. I hope everyone is working hard on caring for themselves and staying sober.

Thanks deeker. Yes I am working hard and trying to be productive. I wonder if I have a better chance of finding a wife as a sober person instead of as a drunk?

Glad to see ya back, Mate,

My creativity has been pretty stymied as well. Drawings look as I stuck a pencil in my nostril and face planted on my desk. It isn't pretty.

Can't find much of a muse right now either. I'm chalking it up to my brain having to re-wire itself back to normal after years of fairly solid abuse.

Good thing I loved to draw/treasure some of that art work pre drunk, or I'd be REALLY discouraged.

I'm happier today cause I see you're back! Bon Chance!
