are you comitted to NOT drinking today no matter what?

you came here, EXCELLENT.
check in with yourself on HALT - where are you at with SELF CARE today?
is there anything residual from yesterday that feels unsettled, unresolved, unremoved - like when you get a small rock in your shoe?

what are you WILLING to do today for your recovery?
what are you GOING to do today for your recovery?

how many days has it been Serenidad? Don't drink today, ok? We'll worry about tomorrow when it comes.

Today I made sure to eat, I contacted a woman from AA and she gave me some tips for my cravings, I ran errands with my kids, I am cooking now (which is relaxing for me), I read my meditation, prayed this morning on my knees for God to help me stay sober and tonite I am going to a meeting and then to bed. I'm trying to cut myself a little "slack" on getting my TO-DO list done. Rome wasn't built in a day, right? Thanks ADVIL!

Always make sure on a To Do list to make this #1:

1) Write To Do List

I tried to PM as well, but it said your inbox was full...

Hope you made it through! Keep checking in! We're here for you.

I had some cravings yesterday too.. taking a shower usually helps me forget about them if HALT doesn't apply. It applied yesterday! I was hungry, angry and tired haha

I always feel a little stronger when I get through them unscathed. Makes me feel a little bit more prepared for the next time. I remember how rough they were that first week though, so I feel your pain! Just go one day at a time, or one minute if you have to!

How did the meeting go? Sounds like you had a good night before that. I can't ever imagine cooking being relaxing.. that's about as stressed out as I get! I'm only good at making things in the microwave haha I've been using the oven more lately though and I'm getting better. I always think the door is going to flip up when I'm putting something in/taking something out and burn off my arm
