Day 7.

Monday, March 18, 2013

Today is day 7 of my sobriety. I feel alright, despite working two noc shifts at the hopsital this weekend and getting little sleep today cause I had to wake up and finish my homework. But alcohol is not my excuse for anything right now. I feel strong with not drinking today. Although my health over all is feeling weak, my strength for not drinking is powerful. Like I've said before, my mind is the devils playground when I'm not keeping busy. So maybe working alot has been my shield against temptation. My husband and I are going to try and go to a AA meeting this week that I found, it is apart of the young people's of aa that I use to go to in Reno a few years back. Hopefully we can find sober friends there around our age, which will help support us in this journey. Today I'm tired and frail, yet I'm still strong.

    That's wonderful news! There are so many calories in alcohol - even the lower-calorie beers and lighter wines - plus, they really used to amp up my appetite so much emoticon . I hope you'll find just the support you're looking for at the meeting, too.

    Seven days is a nice stretch of time - congratulations!! emoticon

    I'm very proud of you for taking these steps. Just keep with it. My husband is going to do a "detox" with me (mine is for sugar, his is for beer) so I'm hoping it helps him, while I don't know that I'd call him alcoholic, he does have a habit. He uses it as an easy solution to things like "can't sleep" or some sort of ache or pain or "stressful day relief". Hopefully the time to detox he will pick up other coping mechanisms.

    Good job and remember how strong you feel now for those days where it feels distant.
