One week done!

Today is the end of 7 days, one entire week without wine!!!! This is the longest I’ve ever made it (without being pregnant) and now focused on getting to day 10. I still have a headache and am not sleeping great, but it is so very nice to wake up and remember the night, to spend quality time with my sons and just be present! I have found that I am drinking A LOT of non-alcoholic drinks, flavored waters, sparkling sodas, juices, etc…and have to pee all the time! I think my drinking problem extends to all beverages, I just have to have something to drink at all times! Guess soda and waters are better than wine any time ;). At least for now, I’m not focusing on that and just being constantly aware of what alcohol does to me, none of which is positive or good in any way. I was a bit grumpy getting home from work, but my son eagerly pointed out that this was the end of an entire week of my not having wine and how proud he was of me…that changed my perspective on the night and now I am happily blogging and looking forward to vegetating in front of the television with my whole family….sober! Massive hugs to all of you who are supporting me, I don’t think I could do this without each and every one of you! THANK YOU! I hope I can be there for you all as you are for me 🙂 Happy Tuesday and on to day 8….

    Yay! What a milestone. Well I think I share your drink problem too…. I buy sparkling water by the crate and have to pee so often that I’m having to overcome my public restroom phobia! Now there’s something to blog about!
    Congratulations for being so strong. I’m soooo happy for you!

    Congratulations, well done! I feel so happy for you. 😊😊😊 I too had headaches in the first 2 weeks but they eased off. I drink LOADS of soda water based drinks. Between 5pm and 7.30pm I can get through an entire litre bottle +. I think I just have to have something in my hand. Id even put it in a wine glass or a tall glass with ice and one of the kids straws. Non alcoholic drinks dont have to be boring 😀

    1. That is it exactly!!!! I have to have something in my hand, some sort of beverage…now it’s just lemony lime soda and cranberry juice 🙂 Thank you for your support and glad to hear the headache might go away soon! That will be a huge relief for me.

    1. Thank you so much! I think something within me has changed (at least I hope it has)! I feel differently about wine and am trying to hold onto that…today is day 8! Hugs to you 🙂
