Day 8 today :)


Hi!

Just wanted to say that Iīm doing well, Itīs evening of the day 8 for me .

Funny, how time is relative, 8 days really isnīt that long, but it sure feels like forever for me. Feels like a month.

I have developed a sweettooth for icecream :O, I never used to be big fan of sweets, but now Iīve been eating a stick icecream every night. Learnt from web, that alcohol is basically a form of sugar and Itīs normal to crave sweet things in the beginning.

Bad thing is, Iīve been smoking a lot more during job hours, since I got sober, donīt know why... Form of stress relief, now that drinking is out of the question?....thinking about quitting that too..

Iīll be back here to report on my two week progress .
