Welcome rednails

SR helped me turn my life around. I know we can help you do that too
I'm glad you found us.

Do you have any ideas on a plan or approach yet?

Hi Dee!

I'm trying to get through 7 days first and then go from there.

I guess the "plan" is just to stay away from alcohol. There isn't any in my house right now, and I don't really go out a lot any way so I don't think that will be an issue.

Got through Day 1 yesterday without a problem. Of course that's only one day but I didn't really want alcohol at all so that's good. I'm planning on joining a gym tomorrow.

I guess my "plan" is just to fill the evening hours with productive things. I was drinking out of boredom a lot, and realistically I only have about 4 hours to fill to be sure that I don't drink on week nights (weekends will be a whole different issue, but we have my stepdaughter this weekend so it shouldn't be too difficult to stay busy). So longer walks for my dog, lots of books, and lots and lots of tea.

Hi rednails, welcome to SR!

Sobriety for most starts with acceptance we cannot drink "normally". From that point we must find the willingness to change - which does involve a plan.

Simply not drinking in the short run, regardless of what is occurring around us - good or bad - get us started. From that point a "plan" helps keep us on track.

Quitting is a process, it sounds like you have started that process.......

Welcome
