Three weeks now again - Feeling amazing.


Hey guys,

You know when you drink and you wake up and feel like absolute garbage and horrible depression? - The first thing you think is that you don't want to ever feel like that again.

Well, this time is the same but quite the opposite. I think I'm over three weeks and starting to reduce my anxiety and also when I wake up, I feel wonderful and my thought is "I can't remember when I felt like this, I wish I can feel like this every day". The good thing is that I can.

And this is just three weeks into sobriety. Last time I was over two months sober, and I remember going out of my house (usually, I had huge anxiety just by leaving my house), and that anxiety was gone. I thought to my self "this is interesting".

I just wanted to show some happiness and gracefulness because it's also needed, and people in here are a huge reason for that.

Have a wonderful Sunday all.

J

I am three weeks sober today and itís not been easy. I was on a pink cloud the first week but crashed back down to reality afterwards. Itís not been an easy journey to live life without my anesthetic. In fact itís been damn hard and there have been times when I wanted to quit . I am also suffering from insomnia and extreme mood swings . In fact I consider myself still to be a rather miserable person.

But having said that, I would rather have the life I have now than the nightmare of a life I was barely managing three weeks ago.

So yes ... I am happy and grateful to be sober 😊

This is great! At 3 weeks I was uneasy, not sure what to do, but headstrong to keep moving forward. I did feel better in the mornings for sure! Keep at it, things continue to improve.
