I'm feeling good this morning as I realise it is 1 week ago today that I stopped drinking! This week has felt good. With each passing day I am more confident that I made the right decision. It's been nice not to wake up in the morning with crazy anxiety and paralyzing fear of what I did the night before! Thanks for your support everyone!

I'm at 1 week too. I thought it might be getting a little bit easier by now but I'm really struggling.

The trouble is, the more I consider I've been good, the more I think I should reward myself. And guess what I think a reward should consist of? Yes, you guessed it, a drink!

Tonight is day 8.

PedroChavez, great job on 8 days. Try to reward yourself with something else. Maybe a nice dinner or Starbucks. It is hard, but it's harder to deal with hangovers, shame and guilt. Be true to yourself. Make yourself proud! You can do it!

1 week is wonderful! And yes, reward yourself, with something fun or healthy, but not alcoholic.
