Re: Today is Overwhelming-Help

Making a schedule and sticking to it, in retrospect for me was a great benefit to me. So set a schedule and put the energy now spent on fretting over how you let things go into staying on the schedule you set up for yourself. Tackle something that you 'let go' in terms of cleaning or getting caught...

Re: Today is Overwhelming-Help

Day 13. Woke up with bad anxiety, When will this stop. I have never before been so sure that I will not drink, one day at a time. I am committed to getting my life back, but sometimes the thought of how I let everything go while I was drinking overwhelms me. When will I be able to wake up and feel p...

Re: New sort of.

Welcome. I'm 10 days sober and already feeling better. The jitters and anxiety are subsiding, although the remorse still creeps in. When it does I pray. Stick around this does help.

Re: Today is Overwhelming-Help

Chores are beginning to get completed and my outlook continues to get better and better with each sober day that passes. I suspect that something along those lines will happen with you as time progresses. Like I mentioned above, meeting will help so you can get out and socialize with those that hav...

Re: New Here

Be careful! It will be great to make new friends, but heartbreaking to lose them. I made great friends when I moved here 20 years ago. Neighbor parties were so much fun. These people drank and had fun, I drank and drank until I passed out. I would have no memory of going home or what I said. I would...
