in bed

Tonight was tough. Want a cigarette and wine. Picked tv and my husband ...thank goodness. I'm over 2 weeks sober but still struggling with a random Thursday night. Goodnight friends and your posts. It helped me !

Good job tonight. ..tomorrow you'll have another day of sobriety. Keep pushing through. ..it will get easier. It's really hard in the beginning, but you are doing well.

I substitute ice water and ice cream. It is really hard to fight the cravings.

That is great, congratulations BeBetter! I, too, am struggling with a random Thursday night and am also going to sleep now, sober and proud. I hope you are proud of yourself as well! The upside to difficult nights like tonight is you know you can get through them. When you're struggling in the future, just remember you made it through one before! Congratulations again Have a great night!

I make a TO- DO list every day at work , and I stick to it when I get home. It isn't always chores. Go to the park, go to the store, paint with the kids, rent movie.....etc. I always make sure I have plenty of yummy seltzers and lollipops. I'm very determined this time, so I set myself up for success, as opposed to failure. And of course, I stay logged in here - not always posting, but ALWAYS reading. Thanks for all of the support. Another good day in the books folks!!

Good for you! Random temptation can help you to feel stronger in your resolve.

BeBetter - I thought I was the only one that did lollipops. They were a great distraction the first few weeks for me. As was already mentioned, temptations at 2 wks. are normal, and everything will simmer down. You're doing great.
