How does it feel?

Encouraging.

The night before I went to in patient treatment, I was sitting at the bar drinking double jack and cokes until they closed down. I figured I’d do 2 weeks, everything would be fine, and I’d get back to “normal” life. I never even considered going a year without a drink. It seemed impossible.

But reaching 1 year just reinforces that I can do this, but I’ve made it to this point by only focusing on today. I’ve just focused on the present and the now 366 times.

I’m still a newbie at 2-weeks sober but man this is great! I’m not sure what kind of alcoholic I was (“high functioning”?) but I see even the mundane )”(organizing my place, cooking etc) in a different light now. Thankful I woke up when I did.

Do you tell your friends and family every time you try to get sober? This is my third try, and at this point I'm not telling anyone because I'm afraid of either disappointing them, or seeing that they don't believe in my ability to do it on their face. Just in an emotionally fragile place right now and would rather try and move in silence this time. Good idea, bad idea? Trying not to look at it is as shame, more just wanting my privacy.

So I wanted to share my experience and see if it helps anyone else out there. I was not an alcoholic, but I was definitely alcohol abusive.

I would also do and say stupid things that just made no sense and I even got in trouble with the law a few times.

One day, my friend and I after a few day bender decided to take some LSD because we were hung over and just wanted to not drink and chill. (Cont.)

Group therapy this week brought so much shit to the surface this week I’m tired from crying. I know it gets worse before it gets better and this is a good sign. I have a pattern of taking all of my historical coping skills to an explosively unhealthy place. Ex I became a distance runner to deal with being disowned as a teenager. Well that triggered a degenerative spinal issue that has given me major issues for the last 20 years. Replaced running w cpa and now I’m a mean workaholic. Ugh I suck
