Day 3

Still not exactly sure why it went pear shaped but it did and I need to put plans in place so it won’t happen again and then just get over it. In all honesty I shouldn’t have gone out, I should have immersed myself in a nice deep, hot bath and not moved for a few hours, I should have eaten chocolate and watched shite on TV, but I didn’t, I will next time and now I’m gonna get over it.

So far 2018 has been my best AF year yet, in 2017 I managed sober Jan, drank Feb, sober March, drank April onwards – with bits here and there of sobriety. 2018 so far has been:  163 days – 9 = 154 sober days vs 9 drinking days (these sums are don’t with me counting on my fingers so may be slightly dubious). When I get to the end of the year it will be 365 – 9 = 356 sober days – bring it on!!!!!

I’ve promised myself that when I get to 1 whole year sober I will get a tattoo, I know exactly what I want, its important to me but its also important that I have a goal to work towards.

  1. I think every day sober is a good day. Definitely continue trying to reach longer days. It’s such a shit place to be sometimes “in the weeds ” as I call it. Am I sober? Am I not? It’s like I never really get peace because I’m so obsessed normally in like Days 1-14 with how I’m going to either get or stay away from my next drinks… Or maybe it’s just withdrawals or anxiety or any of that but it’s so wrapped up in the first couple of weeks of quitting I definitely have felt more calmness after I hit 30 days and stay that way and hate having to hit the reset button but on the flip side I know the reset button well and still just try to look at everyday as a victory. And that was probably the best run on since I’ve written in a while…😀


  2. Good for you on moving on. I too look at the number of sober vs not days and remember that I am doing good – never quit quitting I say to myself. Though it would be nice to have that continuous stretch of time – for which I will always strive for. I have a great quote on my board “Remember how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. You are not where you want to be, but neither are you where you used to be”. Rick Warren.
