    Last night was my going away party. It's sad to move away from my friends/family to a new country for the next 3-6 years but I did not have a drink and still had such a wonderful time.

    Good job- and this morning you had no regrets or hazy memory of the going away party. Best wishes on your new adventure. Sounds exciting!

    14. Stopping drinking DID change me for the better, but I found it hard to deal with being this different person. Again, change can be scary, the familiar will feel comforting.

    @Up_n_Running I like all of your statements but especially this one. During Covid, there were no outside get togethers, so it was easier to just sit at home and not drink. I also changed from not drinking and found it difficult to just sit with my feelings.

    Good morning!
    Today I feel pretty good. Day 4 AF and my face looks better / eyes clearer. What a difference a few days make.
    @Up_n_Running REally cute gif!
    @lozingitslowly Thanks for sharing!! It always helps!

    I too am feeling better since my crazy wine soaked weekend reunion with my old college pals. I agree with Ruby Red, what a difference a few days makes. Still not sleeping which is really pissing me off. At least I feel well enough to walk in the morning before the high 90's return during the days.

    GOOD MORN <3 I am uninstalling my Easy Quit Drinking app on my phone. I'm needing more space so I decided that I really do not "need" to have this on my phone any longer. I rarely consult it so there is no further purpose for it to be taking up room on my phone...SO, having said all of that, here are my current stats before they are no longer. $$ saved $8,272 Total Healthy 94.17% Drinks Passed 4,963.3 Time Sober 1158 days & 3 hours (3 yrs 2 months 1 day & 3 hrs) AND that's all folks...onward & upward with 3 more days off to enjoy in freedom!!

    I seriously feel like I've just been released from prison after being in captivity for the past several years. WooHoo, I'm still in the honeymoon phase and am enjoying my new-found lease on life.

    I'm hoping everyone has a great weekend B)

    An emotional prison is harmful - so yes, you are feeling elated. I'm happy for you! congrats on your amazing 1158 through it ALL. You are doing so well!
