Adding up the sober days

I'm at the end of day four, had an ok day.
I think I've been slowing the recovery of my brain from opiate use by drinking. Spiking my dopamine levels with booze not unlike i was with opiates. Keeping my body chemistry off balance.

I feel good about my goals and reasons for staying clean. More than I've gone into here. It's not easy, almost like ignoring the desires, just keep swimmimg.

Each day is a little,bit better.

It will keep getting better. For your brain really to heal you might want to give it a break from everything

You said "just keep swimming", so I had to post the above!

Anyway, you're doing a great job so far and be patient with your body whilst you heal :-)

Yep, that's one of my wife's favorite lines from that movie.

Thanks all - will update this thread as things progress.

It does get better. It takes time, but each day you'll notice new and better things.

You got this!!
