Day 4 is Kicking my a**


I have been telling myself that cravings only last 9 minutes. Its been helping. Yesterday I took my son to NASA and spent 8 hours there. Ive been putting that off forever . Today I actually mowed my lawn. But going to Krogerís was the hardest... because my liquor store is in the same parking lot. What stopped me from buying my little ten pack of fireball shots I have no idea. But it waze THE HARDEST THING I HAVE DONE IN FOREVER. Iím home now. Sober and will not drink today.

I understand that early craving ,bad enough in your head but when walking past the drink isle it was torture . Good news is it gets better and better and now at 7 months it,s almost non existent.

Hang in there your doing great .

The first week or two is really hard. It took constant vigilance to stay sober at first. This stuff doesn't happen on its own...you have to work for it.

Hang in there Tv1. It seemed sometimes to me that the 9 minutes lasted the whole day. You did great in passing on that opportunity to drink.
