Day 2


Felt angry with the AV playing in my head, insisting I can moderate. But I no longer drink (really?!, my AV says, even as I type this), so it wasn't an option.
Treating myself and the kids to pizza for dinner and settling in for an evening of MasterChef and snuggling with the kids. Beats sitting on verandah in the cold, chain smoking and binge drinking and then feeling horrendous tomorrow and achieving nothing.

Exactly right.

Every night is not dinner out special for me, but waking up still sober is very special.

Going to work, the gym, or my kids baseball game and rocking it w full vigor is so much more appealing than being a hung over or drunken mess.

I routinely would worry that I was going to get pulled over for DUI...every day. I was never wasted driving, but i was always buzzed.

It is hard everyday at times, but mostly it feels great no longer being physically addicted.

Hang in there about a month, get physically clean. Once your body feels what it is like to be clean and healing, if you relapse the hell you suffer will make you want to quit mentally.

You know you want to quit, otherwise you would not be here.

Thanks.

Sounds like a great night and good work recognizing the AV. Good times and memories with my kids had been a huge benefit getting sober.
