Day 9- turning the corner


Thanks to this forum and some unexplained resolve, I am about to close out day 9. I did six days then drank a week ago Saturday- but nothing since. Today was the first day I drove home and to run some errands without the urge to pull into the liquor store. I am sure there will be days with stronger urges, but I am starting to get glimpses of a normal life without alcohol, the strong urges, and minus the madness. Thanks all.

Great job Juno! How are you doing? What are you struggling with most. Mine are mostly triggers and impulsive thoughts about drinking. Probably half as many as a week ago.

Kids - I struggle with that time of day right after work before I've had dinner and get the idea of glass of wine. Yesterday I had brief thoughts about it and worked through them - made some dinner and then the thoughts were gone. Me too - the impulsive thoughts are the hardest. I'm really strong in the morning and then my resolve kind of weakens as the day goes on. I think that's pretty common, though. Now that we're in double digits, we're at a whole new level

Exactly the boat I'm in.
