2 weeks

I feel a little bit behind everyone here, I’ve started over so many times but Saturday was 2 weeks alcohol free! I’ve accomplished 2 weeks before but I feel more solid about continuing on this time. It hasn’t been easy as I basically used alcohol during stressful situations and I stress daily. I am excited to say it’s getting easier every day to grab a coffee, tea or a La Croix instead.

I don’t really have amazing uplifting things to say and I don’t want to bore all with old thoughts. This past weekend wasn’t the best. Saturday night didn’t go as planned and I was looking forward to Sunday going to the movies with family, that didn’t happen. I was in a quiet mood all day Sunday. I did think of alcohol but quickly diverted to coffee. I accomplished a lot around home.

I washed my bedsheets and blankets. Last night they smelled heavenly as I drifted off to sleep. This is something I would have never felt/appreciated so much when I was drinking alcohol.

Thank you all for all your posts, I read them all and they truly help so much! Now I must get my arse to work! Have a good day all!

    Lovely to hear from you and well done! It can be a bummer when things you look forward to don’t happen. I know that feeling. Not drinking helps me shake myself out if the miseries more easily I think.

    • You are so correct!!! Drinking only makes ya feel worse, you think your masking things but actually I was making them worse. I also never would have thought at 46 years old I would feel so proud of myself and am so glad for you all here because it’s so reassuring to have such relatable friends! 😀

        It’s something to really be proud of. I felt great at 2 weeks, struggled a little more at 6/7 weeks but have come out of that. I think I actually am missing it much less and don’t crave it nearly as much. Keep going my friend xxxx

    You don’t have to put uplifting thoughts, just post like you’re doing. The blog gives you the support we all need when stopping. You are doing well. Share your thoughts, get the support, that’s what this is all about and WELL DONE! 👏

  4. 2 weeks is awesome! Be proud of yourself and as Jim says just keep posting – you have got this! 💞💞
