Back to day 1

had my appointment with alochol councilor yesterday which he said he will get alcohol doctor to see me next week which i she will put me on anti craving meds so i have to be free from alcohol for week to get them. so guess there is a little motivation to stick with it, like i have said that a millions times also . never mind keeping positive about it.

great job on everyone else x

Hi guys, checking in on day 3.
Sunday was crazy busy with baseball for my boys. We got home and they went to bed and I ended up having a huge panic attack. It's been a while since I've had one, especially that bad. It solidified that I have got to give sobriety my all right now. I was so worn out by it that I napped most of the day away yesterday. More baseball last night.
Feeling quite a bit better today, thank goodness. I will not drink today.

Well done Citrus. Erratic, sounds like you have a plan?

Hope it's ok to keep posting here because I had a really bad moment but thinking of this thread really helped!
After the gym: little voice telling me go to the store, you need milk & water. I totally didn't and knew the underlying motive: "what harm could a little baby bottle of wine do - it'd help you relax after exercising. You've earned it". Crazy.

So I thought of this thread and my plan and drove straight home to my dry house!!! I know this will get easier after the first month or so, then the sobriety habit bit kicks in more...
I'm now down 4 days. I haven't gone 5 in a row yet this year so tomorrow will be a milestone 2019 day!!!

Hope you're all doing well.

Have you ever woken up in the morning/afternoon from a night of heavy drinking and thought to yourself, "hmmm, I'm glad I did that"? Thinking back over the years, I cannot recall ever thinking that. It was always, "I'm gonna die...why the hell did I do that? That wasn't fun....it sucked!". Come to think of it, I think this applies to McDonalds for me as well. Anyway, this is something I need to remember whenever I get that alcohol voice popping into my head. Day 3.

Day 5 under the belt, and I continue to feel better! Had a super long and exhausting day at work, but I still feel better than the last few days, and definitely better than when I drank. By now I probably would have semi-passed out. Iím so happy I know that I wonít have regrets tomorrow morning.

ĎNight all.

I'm terrible about posting and sticking to my plan not to drink. So I'm in. Can't even recall if I've ever joined a class, but it's not time to look in the rear view mirror. Full speed ahead.

Just got home after dinner at my favorite spot and a baseball game. We lost bit it was still a good time watching my son pitch and make a home run and in twice more. Especially watching sober. I had cravings for a cigarette which always leads to me buying booze. But I held strong, thank goodness.

Welcome to the newcomers to the class! The more the merrier! :grouphug:

Good morning everyone, waking up to day 6 here. Didnít get many hours sleep unfortunately, but I donít think it was withdrawal, just regular bad sleep (I actually canít remember the last time I had a bad nights sleep that wasnít caused by alcohol - is it weird that Iím kinda excited about a good old fashioned bad nights sleep?).

Day 6! Iím so excited! I honestly canít remember the last time I didnít have a drink for 6 days.

Newbeginning421 06-05-2019 04:17 AM

Day 26 here had another drug drinking dream but this time did not feel high or drunk guess next time I have a dream like this I will have to go to another dealer in the dream JK.. ha. There is so much I want to do but don't want to over do it so early in recovery as well. I don't have urge to drink more like passing thoughts of why not just go into that bar or score. My life is such a mess and so much digging to do. Well at least when I am done digging I will no longer be the pathetic loser I am today.

creativespirit9 06-05-2019 05:14 AM

Good Morning Classmates.. Day 5 begins today. I had a really bad day at work yesterday and really wanted some wine as that is usually my go to stress buster but resisted by taking a bath and going to bed early. Not feeling well today but pushing through and facing the day.

I hope everyone has a good day - we are all getting stronger day by day!

Citrus 06-05-2019 05:20 AM

Good morning class. 😊

Linners820 06-05-2019 05:36 AM

Hi everyone, I'd like to join you. I'm still having trouble fighting off the urges to drink and making it past day 4. Today is day 1 yet again and I know I need to create some new, different habits. I'm not the best at posting when I feel like drinking so that's one of my goals--to recognize it and reach out before buying alcohol. Feels good to be here with people who understand.

GetSmart 06-05-2019 05:42 AM

I guess officially it is day one, since I had a beer before dinner last night--but that was before I joined the class. I'm a binger that sometimes turns into a bender, which means I usually have no problem getting through the first 4 days of the week but when Friday comes around look out, even if I consciously do not want to get drunk. still happens in spite of the best intentions. we all know the song. anyway hello and welcome to all in the class.

Citrus 06-05-2019 05:49 AM

Welcome Linners, I hope this can be your last day 1. I know that I need to be better about posting when I have an urge and sticking around until it passes also.

Get smart, the first week is so hard. But it is so worth it to get past it.
