I'm on day two as well and I know what you mean. It's that mindset of "no more"!

Have a lovely day :-)

I relapsed after 3 months about 3 weeks ago. It was the best thing I ever did because as a punishment (humiliation) I went to an AA meeting. I realised my greatest mistake was thinking I could do it alone. I know now that I didn't know what it was. I thought it was not drinking. IT for me is learning how to live sober. I no longer count the days but instead work on improving myself.
I went to AA as a self punishment and found a place where I could learn to live and not count days, make sober friends, be heard, listen and learn and finally feel confident that I won't drink myself to an early grave.
Good luck with life
(Oh, & AA isn't religious - I atheist and fit right in)

I used to only wish for that to be my only punishment. Most times I also had to deal with the law and loving family members and friends and neighbors. You got off very easy, that time.

For the more that I tested the waters the deeper and rougher they got.

So glad you are back! Something that helped me was to plug into the 24 Hour thread. I post in there every single day and make a commitment to today. I don't ever want to have to tell those folks "Hey, it is day 1 again" OR have my spouse post in there "she didn't make it back this time."

Thanks, Altoids. I have checked in on the 24 hour thread. That simple achievable commitment could help a lot. At least I've made it past day 2!
