So I sit here on day 5 and thinking of the up and coming weekend I re-read my last “first weekend” post from my only other semi successful attempt at sobriety. I am happy to say I am not nearly as worried or lost as I was back then. I feel comfortable. I feel ready. I feel like I’m in a much more peaceful place this time. I have a trip to the beach. Pilates. My recovery book. Laundry. The mall. So many things I have planned and knowing I won’t be wasted by noon I know I will get them all done. 🙂
Happy Sober Weekend Everyone!

Jasus i will have to find a hobbie I can knit which is hard when I’m off my face, if I last till Monday without crashing I will be amazed
You WILL make it through til monday. Keep busy. Run errands. You WILL make it. 🙂
Having a plan that keeps you occupied is key in the early days. Glad to hear you’ve got a good view of your weekend. 😉
Thanks Chris! It is such a pleasant feeling. This entire week has FLOWN by which I was not expecting at all! Best, xo
Yup. Make sure to eat and rest and enjoy yourself. The days will fly by.
They have!!! This week has been insane. I thought like last time I’d be depressed but this week has just flown by! Its been wonderful, thank you for the support!
Well done. You are doing better than me. However, I feel like I’m doing better this week than anyother week. It’s not fantastic however, better.x
Happy sober weekend to you, also. Love the quote at the end.
Nearly 7 days sober including weekend still feel like shit though
Maybe try to do something to treat yourself? Golf game? Massage? Go see a movie? 7 days is a great accomplishment!! Congrats!
Thanks. Weirdly I spent more money not drinking bloody xbox
Bahahahahaha. But think of the hours you will spend playing that instead of drinking though. I’m sure it’ll pay itself off 😉
Hopefully so, bloody shattered weird I am usually knee deep in booze on a Sunday.
Same here. 2 bottles of champagne by now at least. But not today. Keep your head up. I’m sure it’ll get better 🙂
Thanks. You to!
