Ebbs and flows

11 Jun

After the past week of feeling rubbish today I feel better x a million billion.

It passed, the shitty stuff. Just as it always does. I rode it out and didn’t drink and GUESS WHAT?! It worked, again.

Life isn’t perfect, I’m still tired, still feel fat (note to self: never try on summer clothes from when you were so thin-ill a thigh might have snapped any moment. Bad idea) but I’m sunnier in the head, it’s sunnier in ze climate and all just feels ok.

It’s good for me to get this down on paper to remind myself how feelings change and move on. This page would have been full of horrors if I’d drunk.

Sober sober sober. Day 151 today.

    151 days!! That is just AMAZING! I am on Day 47, so creeping up to Day 50… But I’m going to a family funeral tomorrow, and am going to have to be extra careful there…

      Good you’re preparing yourself though. I always think that alcohol will make this situation works and that helps with the cravings. Good luck and big hugs x

    I’m just a few days off your count, and I’m so with you re sticking with this through the ups and downs. They pass, and then it’s such a great feeling to be sober after all! Best wishes with all the stuff you have going on there. You’re a star and you are doing it! xo
