Day 6 of Sobriety

I'm still haven't felt tempted to drink after being on the brink of despair after my last relapse.  I hope this feeling lasts.  I'm keeping busy and looking forward to a year of sobriety.

Break the cycle! You can do it! Break the cycle! Try not to dwell on the past, it\'s an illusion and has nothing to do with who you are at this moment in time. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Hugs, and God Bless you, my dear friend!

Congrats on day 6. Keeping busy helps. I cleaned out my hoarder of a garage in my first 90 days of sobriety. Every day I felt good that I had accomplished something. That year will creep up on you fast, but we do it 1 day at a time (sometimes 1 minute at a time) Keep it up. Gentle hugs.

Whoops I meant to write to you here. I just commented on a previous entry. How is your weekend going?

Hey Gracie, Thanks for your message. You are right alcohol is a depressant. Its Monday here in Australia. I am feeling a bit down and struggling with cravings. I just try to keep busy to distract myself but do get bored. I\'m on day 9 now and I think the honeymoon period is over so to speak.

Hey Marion,
How are you going? Did you get everything done you needed to? I\'ll try to find things to amuse me today and then go to AA in a few hours.
