Nearly through day one. I haven't seen my ex for a few days so I think that's helping. Today wasn't easy but I have gotten through it. Too sick to really do much.

Today will be different because YOU can make it different.

Make a plan.
Work the plan.
You can do this.

I'm going well today. No real cravings. I don't think I could go through another detox and make it back again. Yesterday was tough feeling like shift all day. I have more energy. I wanted to go to a meeting but there is torrential rain here and flooded roads. Hopefully tomorrow it will clear up a bit.

Hi Sweetichick!! Welcome. I have only been here for a short time but I'm on day 11 and it has been surprisingly easy. You will get the odd craving but keep yourself busy and you will beat it. I am surprised how many hours there are in the day compared to when I was just sitting down in the evenings drinking my wine.
I am tired when I wake up initially but then when I'm actually up I feel great and the biggest thing is no knot in my stomach from feeling guilty from drinking the night before.
Good luck hun xxx

Day 3 already and starting to feel more energetic. To me the choice is simple. Give up now and not die. Keep going and go through a long painful death. I've finally accepted that I can't control it once I start drinking. Or not for long anyhow.

My ex gave me an ultimatum. If I drink again he is pretending I don't exist or walking away. He won't help me out by lending money again. Never seen him so upset. He sees how sick I am. He's also taken my car keys just to make sure. A bit upset over it all. He lent me money for smokes and food.

You're really sending major mixed messages to this guy Sweetichick.

I really think you're better off looking for help elsewhere.

Everytime you let this guy in again you risk the same old cycle happening?
