What's everyone doing today? I've done some painting and household stuff. Think I'll read this afternoon. Hope everyone has a good day/night wherever in the world you are.

Thank you have a great day off to start my list

Hello everyone. I have been on and off of SR, and ready to hop back in with the June class. I have actually cut way back on my drinking, and had 24 days sober in May. But, I am only fooling myself by dancing on a slippery slope. I want and need to abstain completely.

Look forward to the mutual support of this class.

Hi guys & gals, just a quick check in.
I'm on Day 134 :) Doing very well too! I've really impressed myself and my friends, family & Dr.
Health has improved massively and waking up day after day without a hang over is SO worth it.

I hope everyone here is doing well.
To those struggling hang in there, it does get easier with time. If you have a relapse the most important thing is to not mentally beat yourself up. Pick yourself up,, dust yourself off and give it another shot.
I must of had at least 20 false starts before I got any true traction with my path of sobriety.

Sober81 06-01-2019 08:33 AM

Oh I almost forgot too. Over this time my Wife and I have saved over $3334 by not drinking! How cool is that/
Make sure you enjoy the weekend everybody..

BTW I tried to edit my original post. However it seems we can no longer edit our posts? Or am I missing something?

Jumper13 06-01-2019 12:39 PM

Count me in. It's day 1 (again) and I need some accountability.

Calitano 06-01-2019 02:20 PM

Day 1 (again) for me too.
I stopped working my plan, getting back here is part of the new one.

sydneyman 06-01-2019 02:39 PM

Day 205,,this is possible. Just giving you guys some hope. The saying that it gets better still rings true for every week that goes by. Don't stop.
Hard work, 100% commitment , determination and perseverance is the key. Your whole life has to change not just removing the alcohol. Life is a lot different on this side.

I woke up early, coffee, yoga, cardio. Washed my car, ate a healthy lunch, then napped for a few hours. At day 62, the exhaustion has returned. I think the recent stress has left me without much reason to be awake and has drained my energy. I feel lost without work. Itís not a place Iím comfortable with, especially when staying sober. Tonight some shrimp n pasta, maybe an old scary movie and back to bed. Sleeping my way through this white knuckle time.

Day 1 Again
 
Thankful that I can come here without shame. I had one 10 day stretch of sobriety about 6 weeks ago. Then I just impulsively drank. Itís been a daily thing. But I have a job, maintain my home, walk 3 miles daily...believing a lie that I can be moderate. I know I have written about this before and because of that shame made me stay away from SR. So Iíd ask to be part of the June class. I need the help found here. My life is consumed with wanting alcohol to be part of everything. Thanks for listening.

Not doing well today experiencing something I could not put my finger on that i had once before. Withdrawal akathisia from coke. Led me to the psych ward when i was 17 but now that I am older can be strong and hopefully ride this out.

Dee74 06-01-2019 11:50 PM

Hi NB
I dunno if that's common in withdrawal but I've experienced the same before.
Stay focused and try not to worry too much - things should look better tomorrow :)

Hi everyone. Joining this class with 4 days of drug free life. Today is glorious 😊

ConfusedGuy 06-02-2019 01:28 AM

Hi - I'm wanting to sign up for June. I 'relapsed'. so today (June 2) will be day 1, again. I posted on another thread, after a couple months off alcohol, I took a drink yesterday, then the whole day got crazy. Woke up this morning feeling like death. Lucky I think I did not do anything too crazy, cannot remember getting home, found a taxi card in my pocket but dont remember. so I start sobriety again today, wish I could 'rewind' yesterday. Why did I think I could just have a couple of drinks? it never is just a couple. I think I just got lazy about sobriety, then the craving from hell kicked in.

Finallytime 06-02-2019 02:12 AM

Good morning Class of June Ď19, good morning day 3. I slept ok under the circumstances, a bit fitful, and so many dreams. I hear day 3 can be a challenge so I will be mindful of that.

What will you do to not drink today?

Calitano 06-02-2019 02:51 AM

Hello all, Day 2 morning check in for me.
Off to the gym shortly, then I need to catch up on a little work.
Evening plan: long walk with a friend to keep me out of trouble.
