  • I'll send you a friend request! Similar family....
  • Tomorrow, if I do not drink until then, I will have 6 months sober from alcohol.....holy shite. This is the longest I have been sober (other than pregnancy) since high school. This thread was part of the beginning of my journey of quitting alcohol until AA opened back up (COVID). I'm grateful for all of you and amazed at…
  • hi hope everyone is doing well! I'm 4.5 months AF. never could i ever have imagined this. one day at a time taking my power back.

  • 45 days AF. <3 going through hell still. The narc exhusband is not letting me speak with my kids on the phone and it felt like someone ripped my guts out. I thought of alcohol. then I thought of how that would be handing him the power, I'm sick and tired of feeling powerless. It's been a slow, slow road but I am taking it…
  • 36 days AF! I had my 30 day 'birthday' at my local meeting :) been kind of down lately though. I have been gardening and prepping my backyard/beds. I started some seeds, lettuce, lemon cucumber, watermelon, microgreens. My friends who have greenhouses will be giving me their heirloom tomato and other starts when they're…
  • @Fivepts I feel you and can relate so hard. Each person is different. I've finally come to the realization (it took a bloody long time) that I cannot drink again and will never be one of those people who can just 'slow' down. If I ever do pick up a bottle again it will be my last time and it will be the reason/why I die.…
  • I LOVE that book @RubyRed427 and how we are taking back our power by being sober. Update: 29 days AF, tomorrow will be the big 3-0. A friend told me my face is so much clearer dark circles are less, anxiety is always there due to my PTSD and current life situation but it is definitely less than when drinking. hope everyone…
  • 24 days AF as of today :#
  • 17 days AF. Went for a walk/jog on my lunch break and wellness time, ended up doing 3 mi (my work is located at the top of the hill so there's really no flat spots lol) in 54 min. Still battling the sugar, i went through a whole pint of ice cream the other night. If anyone has any healthy alternatives for the sugar…
  • 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…
  • Day 13, woke up to a massive headache that feels like a hangover headache. Hope everyone is doing good. @Up_n_Running HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! :*
  • Thanks everyone <3 today is day 10! Double digits! I took some before pictures and each week I will do another to see the difference and remind myself what it does to the body. BUT, I've actually GAINED weight :| I've been working out, eating healthy, the chocolate/sugar cravings are killing me though (body trying to…
  • Hi, I'm back. @Up_n_Running good for you! <3 that was actually the reason for my hiatus. I had to have help from my doctor to detox from alcohol actually beginning of last month as well as a counselor. I went back and forth on quitting the last time I was on this message board and I was in denial how physically hooked I…
  • i had to drive by several of the stores I would buy booze from and I pulled over and saw @RubyRed427 and @FeelinFooFoo and other replies and it was SOOO hard but I kept driving. Had dropped off my kids with their Dad for his visitation (which is another habit I would drink after) and I went up to my dad's for dinner then…
  • I blew it, bad. but today is a new day. I went on a binge and realized what I was doing and how bad I felt, how embarassing, etc. today is a new day, 1 hr,day at a time.
  • hope everyone has a good day! It's been a bit rough, had a slip up, but i'm sticking with it! I've been walking daily and attempting to get back into running (SLOWLY lol) been listening to the podcast "Love Sober". I've been drinking LOTS of tea, a new tea store opened up nearby and the sweetest older lady runs it and I've…
  • As a mom to 2 Irish twins I've been sucked into that way of thinking which spiraled out of control. I was listening to a podcast which I've been loving (it's called Love Sober) these 2 moms created it and they focused one episode on the "epidemic" of the "mommy juice" stuff and how they had to stop hanging out with certain…
  • Checking in, still going strong. Today is my friday which is a rough one, going to go home drink some tea and wrap presents, normally I would be drinking while I wrapped so tonight will be rough/interesting. @FeelinFooFoo I love your Santa house!
  • thank you. i've been thinking about telling my story there's a lot to it. @wiigelec i started around 15-16. typical high school stuff. I got married to an abuser and it really started spiraling out of control. He was and still does have major drinking issues and it introduced me to a way of drinking with him, then me…
