Day 2... Again


K.. Yesterday I was such a bit*#... Came home from work ready to fight.. Very edgy.. Helped my boys with their homework, made dinner and then I simply could not stand myself or my bad attitude any longer so I went to bed early.. Needless to say.. Best decision I made ... Slept ok.. Not great but no hangover this morning...So to me a great start to day 2...
Even better.. Shared my day 2 with my husband who also struggles with alcohol and anxiety so just maybe this time we can try to recover as a team... One minute at a time!!!

Can relate, yesterday was day 3 & I was PRETTY grumpy! Today has not been so bad. Now if I could sleep past 3am I'd be pretty happy.

I hope your husband also decides to get sober. But even if he doesn't, you still can.

That would be great if you and your husband could recover together. I think your children would benefit from it, too.
Great job on day one. Onto day two, one minute at a time.

Proud of you Daisy. We know how rough it is those first few days.

Good luck and great decision going to bed early. I am on day two myself, and I am really hoping I sleep better tonight then I did last night, one hour is not cutting it at the moment haha. But with my work schedule I can't adjust my sleep patterns either, so napping for me. Let go Energy Drinks! Haha. Keep moving forward, I am trying to hold my head up and keep a good attitude this go 'round.
