It gets better...

This time last week after another long binge, I was shaking and already dreading how the next morning at work would be after three consecutive days of sun-up until sundown drinking. Monday was miserable, I was sweating at the office and looked horrible. Tuesday wasn't much better, but as the week went by, it got better. Friday night I hit a meeting to kick off my weekend. I've spent the rest of the weekend getting so much accomplished, eating again, sleeping well and enjoying the wonderful weather here. Tonight, I grilled out and just finished baking my first cake ever...just for fun. One week ago today I was a mess, tonight I am seven days sober and at peace. I quit beating myself up and that made a huge difference, and it let me move on and start to move forward. So, if you've had a rough weekend or past week, it's not too late to start. It is rough, it is not pretty at first, but it is worth it. It gets better.

It feels so good to be free of it, doesn't it Flawed? I'm glad you've had a peaceful day. Congrats on your 7 days.
