3 weeks


Tomorrow is 3 weeks sober for me. I知 checking in for accountability (maybe to myself as much as the forum).

Emotionally I知 completely unstable. I致e read how the body is all over the place chemically while it heals and I知 trying to remember that but jeez I知 an emotional wreck! My plan is to keep riding this rollercoaster and hope for an end soon.

Thankfully I致e not had too many cravings to battle. I had one today and practiced urge surfing and it passed pretty quickly.

As always, no matter how I feel, I知 thankful for another sober day.

It's ok to be emotional. Things will even out, just hang in there.

Congratulations on 3 weeks! It will get better, the waves will get smaller. Just hold on to something until then. It'll be okay, I promise

Thanks for the encouragement. I burst into tears today at work for no reason. Afterwards all I could do was laugh at myself. I知 holding on to the belief that this is all worth it.

Kamm I am right behind you 19 days here. It is an emotional rollercoaster but am proud of you for handling it sober. I have had some serious cravings as well always Friday after work. We can do this hang in there.

Great job, congrats on 3 weeks. It will get better. I am on Day 47, and still have some emotional moments, but it is all worth it.

Go, Kamm, go ! I can relate to what you are feeling, I'm on day 17 today.

Let's just keep going , just put one foot infront of the other.

Some days I shuffle forward, stooped , looking down. Other days I manage to do it walking upright and even managing to look up and around me.

But Iet's keep walking , one step at a time
