19 days sober

It dawned on me today that 19 days is the longest ive gone without drinking in nearly 10 yrs. Of those 10 yrs i didnt drink alot per say..everything was progressive of course. I have to say, the last few days have been good. No anxiety (which is the worst), no crying spells, no sweating, etc..but i feel blah..yet my mind feels clear. Not feeling sad but not happy either. Last week I had a really hard time coping with stress..because i have always drank to deal..the last few days have not been so bad in regards to that either. I have made it to church the last few Sundays..which I think has helped. I havent made it to a meeting..maybe that should be my next step..

Congrats.

I felt blah for a while too. You drank everyday for 10 yrs. It takes time for your body to readjust.

Congratulations!

Many things take time. Usually half the time of addiction to feel like your true self again. I started using when I was 9. I'm 31 now, so it could take me up to 11 years to remember who I am. Don't get discouraged, instead work towards discovering your true self. Without the first grain of sand, there is no beach.
