Day 3.... again.


I am at day 3 again and hoping to break the cycle of my 3 day relapse. I am praying that I can make it through this day.

Kudos for reaching out--we're in your corner always. Let me know how it's going? What's been working and not working?

You will do it Tell yourself that. Don't give
that number any energy. Use your energy on
focusing on your new healthier life

If you repeatedly tell yourself, YOU CAN'T
you'll stay in that same frame of mind.

Change will be as hard as we make it
This I know for sure

YOU CAN DO IT

Why not use that as a daily mantra
I CAN DO IT....repeat it a zillion times
a day if you have to. That's what I did
at the beginning. Mine was I"M DUN WITH IT
I'd even scream it out. It works, it takes away
the power of thoughts we don't need.

Cheering you on, because I know you can do it

I've been there many, many times myself. And am there today with you. Day 3, again. The good news is that we are trying again and not giving up!

Hi Serenity. You can do this. Post here whenever you want a drink. We are all here with you. It is a wonderful journey when you have friends to walk with you. The words that helped me the most were. Don't pick up the first drink, no matter what! and One day at a time. I don't worry about tomorrow. Today I can do this. I will keep you in my prayers. You can do this!!!!

Just For Today, I won't drink ! Today, I will work on building a new life for myself because I'm worth it ! Keep focused on where you WANT to be ! And if drinking comes to mind, remember all the crappy things about drinking . YOU can do this !

Every minute, then every hour keeps filling up your "well" of strength and determination and before you know it your "well" is overflowing with a positive sense of self and resolve.

I am giving you a cup of "wellness" out of my well of 9 days and hope that helps you through the day while you fill up! Anyone else want to add to Serenty85's well?
