Thanks LuLu. I appreciate that.
Indeed I need to catch my breath and take my time.

Ohh, and yes, you are on day 12.
Congratulations!

Checkin in before bed. Had a touch and go night. Have been eating everything in sight. Think that is part of the issue. Will try to do a better job of eating tomorrow. Very grouchy, got mad at my wife for nothing and had a very short fuse. Knew there was vodka in the cabinet, but managed to stay away. It helps to talk it out now before going to bed. Hoping for a better day tomorrow.

Best to all of you!

Bobdrop, that's how I got into trouble. I had some vodka in my house that I had forgotten to pour out. Please dispose of it.

Your Friend,

Wax

The vodka is my wife's. She doesn't share our affliction. 2 and through every night.

Thanks Wax

Loud!

I went out to dinner the other night and it was as if I had never eaten before!
We ordered 8 dishes between two people!

I hope to get this under control.

Sometimes I was ravenous and sometimes I couldn't eat at all. I think it depends on how malnourished you are?

Hi all. My stress levels are through the roof but no heart attacks yet. Have managed work and family responsibilities without problem. Have to wait and see how the major sources of stress are going to work out. At least by not buying beer I'll have as much money as possible though.

The only thing (other than beer) I'd been spending money on is groceries etc. I wish my wife wouldn't talk about traveling etc though. That's just throwing money we don't have into the wind. We've had an expensive year and might need to buy a car next year to replace the one we currently have.

Now that I've stopped drinking, I'm doing about as much as I can financially to help us get back to a more comfortable position. But the mood swings of withdrawal (between low and lower), piled onto stress, while trying to keep up appearances for the sake of family etc just plain sucks.

I'll try to check in at least once a day for a week or so to let you know I haven't had a heart attack or (very unlikely I hope/think) seizure.

I've enjoyed reading your posts though everyone. Thanks.

Hang in there rubaduck.

Hope you're doing great Wax.

Hi loud430. I think the eating must be part of it, I'm just ready for it to go away because I think all the carbs and sugars are just holding me back.

Glad to have made it to day 9. Wasn't so sure last night.

Hope everyone has a great day!

Good Morning all, keep checking in Rubaduck,

Congrats on day 9 Bobdrop! double digits in your future!!

Not sure what my plans are for the day, I ended up making 5 loaves of banana & pumpkin breads. sent 2 of them to work with husband. I think it was more of a occupation to keep from drinking, as much as just wanting the end results.

Kit, Wax, LuLu and all I hope you have a great day and will catch you later!

On day 2 here and feeling strong in my commitment/realization that for me to drink is to invite death. Had been looking at the road to recovery for a long time, and finally stood up and took my first steps!

Day 8 today. SR and the folks here are exactly what I needed to get me over the hump to keep this going.

My mood shift after Day 5 or so is fantastic. More energy and positive spirits.

Thank you.

Hello All. Away on a work trip. At a location where I have had many an inebriated night. Exercised. Stayed sober. Ready for my meetings tomorrow. I think maybe I need to be a bit harsher on myself. Take responsibility for the relapses. For where I find myself. Just to help in taking drinking off the table completely. It is not fate. It doesn't have to be my destiny. I have a choice. I am trying to approach things differently. Have a good day all.

Having one myself...out of nowhere. Sitting here looking at these boxes for over 2 weeks now and feeling the long haul to Texas creeping up. Getting butterflies and trying to keep up appearances just for myself....if that makes any sense. Tired of moving...and tired of trying to stay sane. And it's a mother ph'r interviewing...downright looneyville if you ask me.

Now here's what I would say in 30 minutes: Beautiful windy day out today. Next week this time I will have left Tucson, AZ and on my way to a cute little hotel in Van Horn, TX. Looking forward to my new apartment and finally getting settled. 2nd phone interview in an hour. Have a great day everyone.
