Still quiet

Sunday, and quietness before I go back to work tomorrow. I haven’t done enough preparation for work, and have been procrastinating terribly; but I haven’t been drinking and that is more important at the moment. Quiet, it really does feel quiet – in a good way.

Once I am busier, and around more people, I worry that there will be triggers.

In the meantime, I am taking it hour by hour, having alcohol-free drinks at all the potential problem points, reading, sitting quietly, thinking. One or two people have said I look well; and my son commented on my being perkier in the evenings.

Is this really Day 7??

  1. Well done. Keep it up! And yes, there will be triggers unfortunately….but each time you get through it you get a little stronger. It’s ok to be cranky and pouty when going through it! Stay strong!
