Ten days


Sober.. And not a moment too soon. The last few months of my drinking I was being such an ass - I used to wake up in the morning dreading to check my phone to see who I'd phoned or txt - 28 years old and I actually had to hide my phone from myself sometimes. It was always so embarrassing the next day if I'd spoke to anyone. And I could rarely remember - it got to the point I was guessing and could never really work out if I'd done it or if I had just been thinking or dreaming about it. I had this constant guilt and anxiety - something awful was due to happen at any moment. I don't miss that at all.

Same problems with phone and bothering people here. Day 11 and glad I don't have to hide my phone from myself anymore and then rummage through stuff looking for it when I'm drunk.

I had a row with my partner one night - announced all over fb that I was sick of men and was becoming a lesbian. Completely forgot all about it for 2 days ..

PS I would like to add (fast) I have nothing against lesbians, in fact my best friend is one.

Acheleus it's so embarrassing isn't it - but when your drunk it really makes so much sense to call or txt that person. It used to feel like being in confession for me lol

Woke up another morning - I'd bought a CAR on ebay! Luckily, it sailed through 3 MOT's with no work after, but was lucky
