4 days


I didnít really even have withdrawals this time. I think thatís why itís been so tempting to give in tonight. Iím also bored. But Iíve been really detached and doing things I would never do lately because of my drinking. Iím just trying to get sober this time because Iím sick of feeling unhealthy and not showing up for the people I love.

4 days of sobriety is great, so keep going.

If you're bored, try to think of something you can do that will help distract you. Can you get outside and do something, or maybe go to a movie, meet up with a sober friend, whatever works for you. It's hard early on, but it will be worth it.

Four days sober is a great start! When I was in early recovery, I walked my dogs a lot. It kept me sober and the dogs liked all the walks.
