Sucks... Anxiety is high today and I dont know why. Stayed sober and am on day 17. Fought the urge yesterday to drink just fine. Just weird and a little disappointing.

This too shall pass.


Feelings/emotions come and go. The trick is learning to roll with it without getting too ruffled.

Really good job on 17. Keep it going.

Yes in the middle of doing some now. I have a bit of a cold and didnt sleep well last night, so maybe both of those combined that is causing this. Just frustrating to have some good days strung together then this.

Maybe its work...

Colds get me down, too.

Breathing exercises can really help with anxiety. Keep practicing them and using when you feel stressed. In time, they will become almost automatic when you feel stressed.

Work can be stressful; try to keep it in healthy perspective. It is not the totality of your life.

Congratulations on 17 days.

I hope you feel better, I am on day 45 and I still have anxiety but it has gotten better. Worst thing is to take a drink and start all over.
