Today sucked

created by: ESWALLY2016 1 week, 6 days ago

Day 7 alcohol free. I’ve had the worst day at work.super stressful. But other things going on as well. Normally I would turn to alcohol to block it all out, but I can’t now. It just makes me realise how reliant I am on alcohol to help me “ manage “. I feel utterly exhausted and so tired with it all. I have to process all this whilst I’m sober and it’s relatively new territory for me. I just keeping hanging on to that “after six months I never think about alcohol anymore”

I'm in the same boat. I get way too stressed about work. I've started looking forward to a good meal, a hot shower, and maybe some dessert. You've got to find ways to make yourself feel good at the end of the day. instead of beating yourself up with the poison.

I like today's SoberTool daily message about learning not to tells us to day Who cares" when we start worrying. Did you read it, called AA stands for attitude adjustment."

After 6 moths you won't think about alcohol???? I've never heard that one. I'm just over 10 yrs and I still think about alcohol. It's in you to correct your thinking. Knowing one is too many and a million aren't enough. Sobriety is a slow arduous process. You can do this.

They might not be an alcoholic, not everyone on here is. Some people may be going through a rough time and drinking too much .
They give up and their life gets better because alcohol was their problem.
I'm an alcoholic I give up and after a period time without my medication( alcohol ) I get worse mentally and spiritually, restlesness irritability and discontent overwhelm me ,alcohol treated my alcoholism until it stopped working, if it still worked I wouldn't be writing this .
We need to implement and practice a daily recovery plan to treat our alcoholism , a substitute to get through life on life's terms .

kkdaddy Awesome on the 10 yrs! I am 31 years sober and I have learned that when the thought comes as it occasionally does, to remember the 7 T's ... Take Time To Think Things Through Throughly! I see where it takes me and I refuse to go there. Now ESwally, life is like a roller coaster, up and down, throw your hands up and enjoy the ride, the highs won't be as high as they were and the lows won't be as low too! Stay in the sober car and watch as great things come your way!
