Day 3

Argh! CRAVINGS WERE REALLY BAD TODAY!!! If anyone has tips on how to beat them, please let me know. It's tough when I want everyone to just back off and leave me alone. I feel so impatient My toughest time is between 3 and 5 PM when I'm getting dinner ready.
I haven't told anyone in my family that I've quit drinking. I guess I'm afraid to disappoint them, especially my sisters. We always drink together. my sister asked me to go to mom's this weekend and I said no...there's no way I'd make it through. I will be going to my camp though. That will be my toughest challenge so far. Camp life is drinking beer! Everyone around me does it from noon on...
I loved waking up though, feeling rested and good! I woke up at 6:30 AM and had 2 hours of peace before my kids got up! Usually I sleep in with them till 10 or now I am grateful for waking up earlier and enjoying the sunshine!
Thank you for your comments to my posts. It truly inspires me to know that people are routing for me!
Goodnight. It's been an exhausting day. Sober day!

  1. Jen when you experience the cravings KNOW that you are facing your addiction head on. Its in these moments that we face it and defeat it each time. When there is no craving, whilst thats nice too, we are not being forced to face our demon and fight it and beat it. Just try to separate craving from decisions about drinking. you ahve made the decsion not to drink, try not to redebate that and just let the craving come and pass. Easier said than done and believe me I don't want to come across as a know-it-all. On this stuff I am a complete novice too. And tomorrow will be Day 5...
