Day 5. Fog lifting... :)

Today makes 5 days. Still fighting through a fog of depression...but it's not the soul crushing stay in bed and weep depression from day 1 and 2.

Actually got out met my GF and went to a friends birthday yesterday. Good food at a restaurant...Meat lovers pizza...YES my appetite is back.

Afterwards we went out to the movies...saw Guardians of the Galaxy.

Sitting there at the movie...a old familiar emotion came back for a little while. Happiness?...fun?...This movie and night was FUN!

I'm back feeling a bit down today...but still I actually laughed a few times during the movie. I'd highly recommend it!

Stay moving forward everyone. I have a long way to go to get back to where I was...But 5 days sober is a BEGINNING.

Stay safe and sober friends. And Go to the movies!

I'm at day seven. When I went to the doctor on the day I quit I was shocked to get weighed and find out that I weighed 142 lbs (I'm 5' 11). Over the weekend I've probably ate more in two days than I ate in a week when I was drinking and it feels pretty good. I'm still not sleeping worth a damn and it may even be getting a little worse, but I'm confident that I've turned a page and have realized this is the last time I'm going through this. I can't say "I can drink on this holiday and pick up sobriety again tomorrow", or any of that.

It's amazing how much the fog continues to clear as you lift your head higher.
