It’s been awhile. So hello again everyone.
I’ve lost track of how long it’s been since I “quit”. I don’t drink a bottle of wine every night. I don’t drink everyday. I have had one drink once a week or once ever two weeks for a month or so. It’s a huge decrease of what it used to be but I still feel guilty for doing it at all.
My family doesn’t know. They keep me mostly accountable. If it wasn’t for them I would probably be drinking more.
I guess what I’m doing here is coming clean.
When I feel the effects of even one drink it brings back memories of stupid things I’ve said and done when under the influence. Makes me sad for all that wasted time in my life that I lost to alcohol.
It feels good to have a decent nights sleep and it feels good not to feel and look like shit in the morning. It feels good to not be spending two hundred bucks a month on booze.
It hasn’t put an end to my depression and anxiety but I think I’m better to cope with that without drinking. I don’t languish and it’s easier to see the other sides and possibilities of situations. Other points of view. I tended to only think about my point of view before.
I don’t know what I’m trying to say. I don’t have a question or a issue. I’m just sad and lonely today.
hey guys I’m trying to get through the day without drinking can you offer me any support ?
Day 6 and my First STRONG temptation to give it up-It’s the weekend-no work tomorrow.You’ve gotten past withdrawal. Two days and then back to it.Need some prayers and strength right now cause i’ve got more justifications right now than I have will power.
