Day 6

On day 6 here and now past the acute withdrawal issues. I was having some anxiety, blood pressure was a little elevated (likely due to the anxiety), edginess and general uneasiness.

However, mornings are calming down a lot and generally my mind feels quiet; strange that cutting alcohol, a depressant, can quiet the mind, but for me once past the acute stage it starts to happen.

Staying vigilant and crafting a detailed plan based on what I've seen here as I know the cravings will start to creep in at some point, but just wanted to share where things are.

Thanks everyone!

Well done on day 6!

My anxiety kicks in the minute I wake up. I find that 15 mins meditation really helps and stops that run away train feeling. Try Mindful peace on youtube, if you want to give it a go. It has helped me so much, might be good for you too xx
