One More Time

Hi everyone, day 1 again.

I went to bed last night not intending on today being day 1, but when I woke up this morning after being so sick the last two days from drinking, I decided I am not going to do this anymore. I had 3 drinks left and I held my breath and turned my head and poured them out. So hard to do but I can't have alcohol here. I need to find some stability in my life, and drinking is making everything chaotic and dark. I had 67 days once, and I remember I didn't feel like this, and I need to get back to that.

When I am drinking, I don't drink water so I started today by increasing my water intake and eating healthy. I have so many more things I need to do and I know this, but I need to start with simple things first so I don't get overwhelmed, which is so easy for me to do.

I guess I am just posting to make it official. I am feeling good and optimistic now, but I know it is going to be difficult at times. I am very thankful for this site and everyone here. Thanks for listening.

Good for you ! My first 24 hrs was rough more physically than mentally, and staying hydrated and eating what I could stand made all the difference. A week (tomorrow) in, and physically I feel pretty much sober-normal now. The buzzing in my head is gone as are the mild tremors I had.

Mentally it's a challenge to stay away from the liquor store here and there, but then I think back to the lowest point I've been and how it made my family feel and the urge is quashed.

Stay strong and stay connected !
