I went back to work today, and have just got home. Why is work such a trigger? I think it’s because I’m tired. As I walked home, I thought how I could sabotage myself, but an email from a friend asking how I was doing stopped me in my tracks (thank you, soberchallenge2014) and instead of sabotaging, I am going to make myself a cup of tea, draw breath and sit with my tiredness. Then I will make supper. I’ve got more work to do, but I won’t worry if I don’t do it, I’ll just make sure I don’t drink.

Keep going!! I’m right with you- on day 5 and it isn’t easy, but we can do it and I truly believe it’s so much better on the other side!
I went 45 days without drinking in Sept-Nov and then the holidays killed me and I gave in. Starting over this time has been harder in terms of the detoxing- so tired, heart palpitations, anxiety horribly.
Your posts these past days have helped give me hope too. keep going!

So proud of you Annie! I check my email every morning hoping to hear that you made it to another AF day. This makes me so happy, it’s not easy, but it will get easier very quickly. I just know that there are lots of us out here rooting for you. Keep going!!
You have your priorities in order now. Tea is so lovely, I have a great jasmine tea, the frangrance is calming. What great timing for the email. So many tools, big and small, will help you on your path.
I used to find getting home from work a trigger too, but now I’ve managed to replace the wine with tea (and sometimes – hell with it – a biscuit). Well done on another day – we’re all with you here!
So pleased to read this Annie 🙂 xxxxxx love and hugs to you on this lovely day x
