I can feel my brain

Today I was in the parking lot of the grocery store and could not find my car when I exited. It took me 10 minutes to remember that I had driven my husbandís car and not my own. I got home and was about to plunk in a chair feeling sorry for myself about this foggy space I am in on day five ,and instead, came out to my patio to drink my seltzer and have a cigarette. And all of a sudden for about two seconds, I felt like the old me looking at where I am right now saying, hang on. I literally felt and think I feel my brain trying to reconnect it self and re-generate to normal function. I realize this will take quite some time, but it was the first glimmer of hope that it may indeed happen.

Hi, welcome to SR and Congratulations on day 5!

I've certainly had my share of brain fog moments during recovery so I think a bit of that is to be expected. Great news is you've stopped putting the poison in and can look forward to more and more improvement.

Glad you're here.

Brain fog isnt fun. Mine took an age to get even slightly better. I actually feared for my safety a little.

It takes a while, but it does get better with more sober time. I was feeling ok by 3 months. That was also when it was suggested I start practicing gratitude every day to strengthen my recovery.

It sounds to me like you made a great choice in how to respond to the situation. Well done. The fog will eventually clear.
