    We are watching a show on Netflix called Marcella. She suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder where she blacks out and absolutely cannot recall what happened during that time period. I googled to see if alcohol can cause this but no, that is just plain old blacking out apparently. I must say though, according to others, my husband etc. I will do or say things that I have absolutely zero recollection of. I become like Jeckyll and Hyde. I can become so mean and say awful things. I said such terrible things to my sister in law once, I cannot believe she forgave me. My husband wondered if I suffered from a split personality or something....that really scared and still does, scare me. The way to keep this from happening is simple enough; keep the booze out of my mouth.

    Why to make a list of “10 Things Better Than Booze” (and then all the other lists!) Tips on how to make alcohol-free life more exciting and fun Why to focus on everything you’re gaining by not drinking, not what you’re giving up How to coach yourself through triggers and cravings and nurture yourself from the inside out Why sobriety is better than moderation (spoiler: it’s the freedom) Why to not focus on the concept of ‘forever’ “You know what’s a hell of a lot more glamorous than champagne and cocktails? ⁠Self-worth, empowerment, creativity, connection, and SOUL.”⁠ - Bex Weller

    15 days AF!! @Up_n_Running yay! we're kind of on the same timeline since your 'blip' lol Yesterday I made my breakfasts for the work week (I work Wed-Sat), made some lunches as well. Workouts were non existent, had a MASSIVE headache for a day and a half for some reason. One day at a time, just need to focus on being sober today <3

    15 days!!! Bravo to you and @Up_n_Running ! Keep up the sober work. One day at a time.

    @Up_n_Running take some vitamin C and zinc if you can today and tomorrow. It is supposed to help with the sickness. Plus drink tons of water. Yes the sun improves our moods drastically.

    2 years today, $2926 saved, 292,626 less calories, which equates to about 40lbs lighter and holding. Thanks to everyone here for helping me realize it just wasn't just me who had to slay this dragon. I have learned that you really can't kill it though, just tame it. Peace and joy to all.

    Bravo!! hooray!!! 2 years and wishing you many more!!!
