I never thought I'd get to this point! 100 days ago my decision was made; no more alcohol! It took a couple of weeks on and off the wagon before I had my final alcoholic drink but I'm now 100 days in and I feel good! I've been through the cravings, desperate to replace the… Continue reading Day 100…..sober and still learning.
I'm not missing alcohol at all at the moment. Really busy at work during the day. I'm running most evenings which I'm really enjoying. The weekends I get quality time with the kids. It all seems win win just now. I haven't attended an AA meeting yet but I've chose the venue and I'm definitely… Continue reading Day 95…..update and other stuff.

I've tried to finish early every day, home before 6pm, hoping to ease the pressure between LM and myself but the reality is that I just created more time for her to pick fights. AK has gone, only an email away but… Continue reading Day 77…. I don’t know if I’m losing or winning.
One more day and I've beat my record, it'll be the longest I've went without alcohol in my adult life. I feel so happy that I've not had a single drink in this time but so far I'm not feeling any significant benefits. My sleep is different but I don't think it's better. I used… Continue reading Day 74……beating my record.
