Day 3-done!


It through my third day with a couple of little wobbles but no alcohol! Relearning my triggers from last time and one of them is when I'm leaving work-usually I'd ask my OH if he wanted anything from our local shop on my way home and if he'd say yes I had "permission" to buy wine for me. I nearly asked tonight (purely habit!) but didn't!

So so hungry though and I keep eating sweet things!

Hope everybody is well xx

Well done! You are allowed as many treats as you want in early sobriety!

It's all about tweaking the habits!! Great job!!

After work I too got a drop in blood sugar, loosing all that sugar in alcohol caused a bit of a crash, i found something sugary late afternoon/early evening to make all the difference, others have mentioned before about a milkshake or ice cream, I go for a large mug of sweet/sugary tea, picks me right up!!

Day 3 is fantastic!! Keep it going!!

Awesome job keep it up. Now you need to celebrate I say splurge on some fast food. Or if your into health food reward yourself with a grand salad or something. Keep up the good work.

You're doing great flossy. Love your positive attitude.

Careful with the cake flossyfressia! LOL! Makes me think of the time I had a huge bowl of ice cream and had it in a Guinness record time, froze my my head and stomach in the process. Yikes!

I'll be careful! It was the same last time too-all I wanted was sugar and pasta! Though not together!
