I've made it to 19 days and I'm soo happy. I can't wait until I get my 30 day tag again but I hope this will be the last time I'm up for it. Just want to keep going and be clean each day. Hope everyone is doing great.
has anyone seen Nevermind who started this great thread?

Have a wonderful Saturday!!

I feel far from great today. I'm still clean but at this time I don't really want to be. Anger has taken over. I found out the drunk driver who hit me got out of everything. She had 4 tickets the night of the accident and the city attorney didn't want to file charges so she got her license back to go on with her life. I'm left with no car, physical therapy every day, medical bills and scared of the road. Ain't life dandy??!!

I can totally relate to that...this is the start of day eleven and I want to "escape" so bad I can hardly stand it

...thank my HP I can come to this site...keeps me hanging in there when I can't get to a meeting.

Dear Mishelly .....

I can truly truly relate! Please read a post I just made. ANGER is a big part of why I drank.

Try to distract yourself by doing something you like (listen to me ..... I should listen to my own self)

Wishing you well and hoping your day gets better!

Sadly, I lost count. I'm new to sobriety and certainly have relapsed and am very ashamed of it.

I know it can be done ..... but one must WANT it.

MOTIVATIONS: alienating and losing the respect, love, and presence of my loved ones (including two daughters)

Why did I relapse ..... although this sounds like an excuse (and perhaps it is), but it was sadness, stress, not knowing what else to do, and feeling that geeeee, if I just have a drink it'll be alright! WRONG! VERY WRONG!

(((Kathy))) Hang in there! You are clean and everything will fall into place. It helps to talk about the anger though. I know for me, anger was a big trigger and I had to do things to help get rid of it. You're doing great and I'm here for you.

(((Mishelly))) Hey there, you're doing great to! Trust that your HP will bring you to where you need to be. Things get better as long as you don't pick up! Pray for the obsession to be lifted.

Hi Maria, glad to see that you stopped by!! (((Maria)))

Today is day 10 for me, feeling so-so today. Glad that I am still sober. Life is smiling at me.

Good for you Hope! Keep it up!

Findingme...what's the name of the thread you wanted me to look at?

When I go to bed tonight it will be the end of my twelfth day clean/sober...I never count the day until it's over! And today hasn't been too bad as far as wanting to drink/use. Thanks all for your support and well wishes.

Hey everyone 22 days here. seems like forever since this thread was started.
Hope, you are right, I am clean and everything will fall into place, maybe not when and how I want but it will. Way to go on 11 days.
Mishelly, congrats on day 12. I understand counting the day when it's over. I count the day when it starts but it isn't official until I'm in bed.
have a great evening everyone.

Day 12

ALMOST DIDN'T MAKE IT, BUT SOMEHOW GOD DID FOR ME WHAT I COULD NOT DO FOR MYSELF. AND YOU KNOW HOW THAT PHONE IS 1000 LBS. WHEN YOU NEED TO USE IT? STILL CLEAN AND FEELING PRETTY MUCH OK WITH LIFE FOR THE MOMENT.

It's day 1 for me. Heh it always seems to be day one. I don't feel too bad, just VERY tired and achy, aside from that it's not too bad. I look forward to day 2,3,4,5,30,60 and so on.

Hi Natsta, welcome to day 1. Just don't use for a day at a time and the numbers will take care of themselves.

Day 14 clean/sober is almost over...and for the last two days the cravings have been less strong and fewer and further between. Hope it stays that way!

One and all!
