Day 3


It痴 like starting the relationship grieving process now rather than a year ago when I moved out.

The main problem that caused that = booze

So I知 on day 3, not letting up, chucked every single can and bottle out of the house I had bags full of empties, all now gone

Got pains in my chest got to get this girl out my head but now I知 not drinking I知 sure things will ease with time

Me too!

Hi Stew, glad to see your post, I too am on day 3 and I, too lay in bed last night having chest pains. Scared the heck out of me, but feel better this morning. I'm so ready to have all this poison out of my system, looking forward to hearing your progress! Every day for me is going to be a challenge, I'm taking it one day at a time. Good luck, sorry to hear about your relationship but there's something better out there for you!

Yay for day 3, Stewie

You can do this! You can do hard things! You can face your pain and come out the other side!

There will be good days and less good days, you can be victorious in both.

Congratulations on day 3 Stewie. Have you thought about counselling to help you with processing some of this stuff? It has really helped me in the past

I hope you have a good day and the chest pains lessen - if they don't or they worry you, best to see a Dr, mate.

Hey Stewy- Congrats on Day 3! So glad to see your positive attitude towards your sobriety. As you know...the further you get away from your last drink, the easier things become.

Have you thought about seeing a counselor to help let go of your last relationship? Just a thought...

Keep going buddy!

Congrats on getting the ball rolling.

I had chest pains for about 2 weeks. Mostly at night. Thought I was about to have a heart attack, which queued anxiety and stress. Hit up the Dr. and the EKG showed normal.

If you are remotely concerned, see a doctor, at least to ease any worry that you might have. It scared the hell out of me.

I think one thing I remembered and continue to remember when working with a newcomer, is this. What are you doing to treat your alcoholism? My point, you just can't just stop! Some psychic change would be necessary to treat alcoholism. So again, for newcomers especially, "What am I doing today to treat my alcoholism?" Quitting is easy, staying stopped, now that is the question. Blessings

You sound so much better, Stew. Proud of you for reaching Day 3.

Brilliant on 3 days, Stewy. I know it's rough now but you will start to feel better with every second you remain sober. I am really proud of you for putting down the bottle. Keep that fire burning. Rooting for you.
