  1. I find that I alternate between euphoria and irritability – usually I get a few days of each. Keeps things interesting at the very least 🙂

  2. My last attempt my family actually begged me to go and get a drink because I’d been such an absolute grouchy monster. I’d like to think it resolves itself after day 30 or so…

  3. I think we tend to fluctuate between highs and lows in those early days with decreasing magnitude as the days go on. As far as I understand it, it’s essentially our neurochemistry resetting itself to normal. I’ve said it before by about 9 or 10 months in is when I experienced something I didn’t recognize: contentment—or as I believe others recognize it: serenity. It’s well-worth the journey.

  4. I had huge mood swings, strong rage interspersed with feeling distant… Even had a panic attack on my 3rd day. It got better and better, then when I fell off the wagon again, my anger returned. When I was sober for a while though, I had much more control over my moods. It’ll get better!
