Morning Endoftheday. I'm quite alright I think! Slept and slept. Don't feel like I lost the benefit of those 15 days completely. I don't feel as emotional and scared as I did. Just have to forgive myself and move on. Grateful day 1 is over.

Are you OK? You went an incredible length of time sober. Do you mind if I ask what helped you?

I'm ok , slept really well and day 1 was no where near as bad as my first day 1 so hopefully I have not done to much damage with the 2 days of drinking .
I keep a dairy every day and look back to day 1 and how bad it was , also write goals to get too , 2 weeks , 50 days etc .
also write and read as much as possible on here and check in into the 24 thread everyday on here really helped

That's good, I'm glad your day 1 wasn't too bad. Your body will be in so much better shape to recover this time. Thanks for sharing, I think a proper journal is the next step for me. I feel like I ended up drinking the other night because I just stopped paying attention. I didn't even have a craving. It was so stupid. Maybe taking my eye off the ball is the more dangerous for me than the cravings.
Hope your day 2 goes well and you are not giving yourself too much of a hard time about losing the thread for a couple of days.

Success is making yourself do the thing you need to do when you need to do it whether you like it or not.
If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

Exactly! And thank you for the flower too

I genuinely find threads like this an inspiration on how slipping up is supported and understood like nothing other i see in life in general. Proud of people i dont know but relate so closely too really helps me so thank you whether your a day or a year im tapering from about 7-10 beers a day to 1-3 depending on withdrawl think this is a great place to try and work it out. We can all do this im sure of it reading the messages and stories thanks guys

Just a set back. Get back on the wagon and forge ahead. I'm on day 10 and the urge to drink is strong. Major hurricane headed my way and all the stress is got me thinking of getting a bottle. As sick as it's sounds how is a bottle of booze gonna help my family in a time of emergency. I guess I answered my own question. Just goes to show what a bad addiction alcohol is. I'm gonna to stay away from it. Good luck everyone.

Nice to meet you Neelll and Joe. I think this place is invaluable for keeping the right perspective about things and remembering that recovery is a work in progress. I was so angry with myself for drinking but feeling hostile, like that, towards myself usually just makes me want to drink more. It takes time and it seems that everyone has had more than a few slips before they become sober for good. I wish you the best of luck with your tapering down Neelll and stay online and in touch.
I hope you both and your families are safe and well during this scary time. Gabe x

Bit of a funny day. Up and down but feels good to be ending the day sober. Day 4 sounds good to me. How's your day been?

That's great. Imagine how much more stressful it'd be tomorrow hungover. I'm feeling a bit pi***d off but nothing like to the extent I'd be if I drank. Ready for day 4. Sleep well.

Better today, I think! Clearer head, less with the bad attitude and grateful we are making head way now. Day 4...not bad. How's your day been? Is Friday a tough night for you?
