Been a few months

Hello, so like the title suggests it's been a while since I was on here. Long story short, did not stop drinking, infact it got worse but not the worst I've been. Had a massive massive breakthrough end of last week, went to a wedding on sat where I did drink alot and honestly was the best wedding I had ever been to but that was it. Now I'm at the end of day 5, around day 3 my husband and I came down with covid so honestly I wasn't sure if it was withdrawal or the illness but now I'm feeling good, went for a walk outside today and I felt my mind was not dehydrated. Last time I hit day 5 was in June and before that was something like 8 years before. I have been freed from that drinking chain and I am at peace. I can still feel the 'Pavlov's dogs' salivating trigger when I think about the store I use to by my wine at but at present that is the only thing. Husband is a crabby sick person but that didn't trigger me which was good. My present plan is to avoid those stores like the plague! Then I will amend the plan as things present themselves. Feels good to go to day 6, strange to think it has been 8+ years since I woke up free of dehydrating poison for 6 days straight. Welp, that's where I am, reading through the other posts I'm seeing several people celebrate their milestones, if you are reading this congratulations! You are an inspiration and thank you for sharing your story!

Welcome back, Orchid. Well done on Day 6.

Please stay close to us and stay vigilant; alcoholism is an insidiously tenacious, tricky and sneaky thing.

The best of sobriety awaits you; donít miss out in it.
