Going backwards?


Don't know really what's wrong with me today. Day 10. I am very happy about that. I just feel stuck or something....

I do not want to drink, but I just want to get this emotional thing under control.

I am on an anti-depressant and see a therapist weekly. Thus my underlying issue when it came to drinking...I didn't have to feel.

I do not want to go down that path again. And by reading the posts, I understand that the emotions are something I have to deal with.

How long will this last? Really scares me when people say years...

Hey Luper, the body needs to adjust to not having alcohol, it can't have what it has always had so it is all over the place, but it will level out at some stage.

I can't say for certain when, I can only speak from my experience, my mood good noticeably better after a few months, but every month after that it has improved even more!!

Hang in there, Day 10 is still early days, give it time!!
