Great job Brian, the ball is now rolling. Good for you.

I don't want to derail the thread, but many people mention waking up earlier when not drinking and sleeping late when drinking. I was the complete opposite. When drinking on the weekends I would pop up incredibly early and be wide awake almost immediately. When not drinking, I slept so sound it was tough getting out of bed. I think it was related to blood pressure, since when drinking it would get pretty high, which in turn made me high strung. Anyone else experience this?

Just updating my thread, day 35 today and everything is normal. Funny how fast time goes bye. I have noticed over the past couple of weeks that I get a lot done after work and have tons more motivation. That is another thing that alchohol does, its the great de-motivator. When I think of all those years drinking with low motivation/energy putting off everything I could or doing a half assed job it now sickens me, what a waste. I now this is true for many of us as I read in others threads the same thing about wasting all our time on drinking. I want to say I wish It never happened but it did and we cant go back to do it over so I will just enjoy my future with plenty of motivation, energy, clear head, positive outlook, etc., etc. this is virtually never ending as far as benefits go.

Day 43, still sober and enjoying life. I still seem to have a withdrawal issue which is a short temper. I don't remember my temper being this short when I was drinking. It may or may not be related. Has anyone else encountered having a quick temper 6 weeks after quitting?
