Good morning,

Thanks lostdog, Susie and all...

Happy New year!! ..

Well, Day 10 no drinks, feeling good...

My new year eve was sober--- made through it...Evening started mild with bowling and I had 2 non-alcoholic beers and then 2 glasses of water, but I made sure I kept eating to beat my mind and focused on the game...Then at the dinner table had another non-alcoholic beer and ordered most expensive item on the menu so my mind could compensate for everything...Left before it was too late...had a good sleep and woke up fresh...

Looking forward to 2015..trying to make it the best year....

again, remembring...one day at a time and i am responsible for my actions and their consequences....think through the first drink....

Thank you everyone for the support...

Have a great wonderful bright new year day...

iantrying. I tried no alcoholic beer when I was 1st sober. I backed up my sobriety date a week because & drank it. Non alcoholic beer has.5% alcohol. It is too close to the real thing for me to mess with it. (just a suggestion that works for me)

Stay safe & think through that 1st (real) drink.

Good afternoon I Am Trying. Bright blessings to you.

Well done for staying sober through this time, it can be challenging. I'm with R Lee on this one. Back in the day i had a therapist i utterly doted on. To this day he influences my life as i keep remembering the things he said many moons ago now. I had stopped for a few days and i couldnt wait to keep seeing him and showing how well i was doing, but the dear chap always brought me down to earth with a bump! He always tried to empower me with focus and simplicity. I told him i had tried a non alcoholic drink and he said, "Tryn, that is like stopping smoking and wandering around with an unlit ciggarette in your mouth!" I hope that helps.

Be peaceful, keep it nice and simple and keep your eyes on the prize. Loveness to you I Am Trying.

Glad you stayed sober Iamtrying. Once I stopped drinking I replaced all the beer I drank with diet coke. The diet coke was similar in habit as the beer. I drank them when I would normally drink beer and popping the tabs qas similar and probably cathartic to some extent. After many, many months I decided to kick the diet coke habit. I had d rank non alcoholic beer on a few occasions. Today I'll usually just have water with a meal or a cranberry & seltzer.

Congrats and stay vigilant.

Good news, iamtrying! Like Saint, I like Diet Coke. I drink usually one a day but today I am splurging and having 2! I get it though......we have to change the things that we were used to when we made a daily habit of our drinking. You are doing a great job, we've almost made it through another 24 hrs! Jenm

way to stay sober, you're doing great. If I drink non-alcoholic anything I'm like wheres the zip to it and I do not need the zip if you know what I mean, so I avoid it because it encourages me I think to drink. But, whatever you're comfortable with that won't tempt you to drink. Your habits are changing and that is so good, very proud and glad to know you.

Good morning!

Thank you RLee, Tryn, Saint, JenM and Lostdog and all others...

I will consider your suggestion of non-alcoholic beer next time and stay away...for me sparkling water seems to be a good substitute, which I had yesterday...

Day 11 no drinks, feeling good...I have enrolled in health club ..want to try different things this year...

Again remembering, one day at a time and I am responsible for my actions and their consequences....and think through the first drink....Most importantly, I am not competing with anybody, Everyday I am trying to be a better person than what I was ...one day at a time...

Have a great wonderful day...

Good morning I Am Trying. Bright blessings to you.

What a thouroughly splendid attitude!! Isn't it smashing? The feeling of freedom and independence from the poisonous alcohol is a truly wonderful feeling. Along R Lee's post, keep focused and keep working at it my friend, you are going along nicely.

My hat is off to you.

Be peaceful, be focused and be strong. Loveness to you I Am Trying

Good evening,

Thank you RLee, Susie, Tryn and Saint and all others...

Day 12 no drinks and feeling good...

The other thing I tried is boiling Tea and Ginger root and drinking helps to cut craving...but so far things going well...

I have to mention that yesterday I got into discussion and became little heated argument with my wife, when such thing used to happen in the past easy way for me was to drink and take it easy..I am a calm person, it is heavy for me to handle arguments and I usually take all the blame and crap etc may or may not be my fault...but yesterday I just walked off...drove to nearby coffee shop and sat and had coffee read some news... any suggestion is welcome on how you might handle heated discussions ....

Remembering, one day at a time and i am responsible for my actions and their consequences, and thinking through the first drink....

Have a great day....

Thank you all so much..

iatrying, Yes before we would go to the bottle & craw inside to get away from life.

There is a difference between being sober & a dry drunk. I choose to change the way I lived my selfish life when drinking. Today I'm no longer in charge. I can make plans but not plan the outcome. This has been the hardest for me. Living life on life's terms.

This morning I asked for guidance living another sober day rather than just not drinking


You chose to get out of the situation rather than argue. Good bob. It is all about growing up.

Day 13 no drinks...feeling good...

Yesterday, I was cooking...another thing in the past was when I cooked, always there was a drink and I related cooking with drinking...but yesterday, it was little hard and i remembered my sayings...and I didn't drink...

Remembering again, One day at a time, I am responsible for my actions and their consequences...think through the first drink...

Thank you all for listening to me and supporting me....

Have a great wonderful day!

Yes! Good job iamtrying! There were so many things I would run to a drink for. I've said this before, and it goes along with the alcoholic's narcissistic way of life - I would drink AT someone or something. Negative, positive, my fault, your fault, no one's fault. The thing is it didn't matter. And it still doesn't. Drinking will land me in one of 3 places - jail/prison, institution, or death. Period. Couple that with the insidious ride of panic and fear, ruined relationships, lost jobs, you name it. No thanks, not me!

I agree with R Lee. There is a difference between living sober and being a dry drunk. I have experienced both over time. Being a dry drunk is simply not drinking anymore. Doing nothing to change any other part of your behavior or your life. Living sober is actually taking a long, hard look at yourself and coming to the realization (hard for most alcoholics - anyone, really) that the earth does not revolve around me! Working on the character defects that got us in the horrible place where we found ourselves when alcohol simply was not working anymore. People who work 12 step programs use the 4th and 5th steps for this. There are many ways though.

Anyway, before I started rambling on, my point is YOU ARE DOING WONDERFULLY! I never want to forget where I came from. Alcoholism is tricky like that - the ONE disease where our mind tries to convince us over time that we do not have a disease. I'm proud of you. Continue to think through that first drink. Jenm

Iamtrying I used to have nightmares too and occasionally have a dream of guilt of drinking and things I did,etc. but then I propel myself to the present, pat my back and go on. If we dwell too long, our pain can come back to haunt us.

I dreamed that one of my students' parents gave me a bottle of wine at Open House. My student teacher caught me nipping the next day and reported me to the principal.

IT NEVER HAPPENED! Our minds can do crazy things to us. Dreams can be surreal. Don't let them get to you.

Keep on keeping on!! You're on the right track.

Well done, iamtrying!

Oh the drinking dreams - I have them from time to time. That's all they are though - dreams. You are right about the liver. I have seen up close and personal what alcoholic cirrhosis does to a person. It is a very terrible thing to watch. Especially when it is your own brother going through it. I praise the Lord that my brother was given a 2nd chance with a liver transplant. Unfortunately, one year post transplant, he decided to drink again and has not stopped. As an alcoholic, continuing to drink, one is simply gambling with his/her own life. I am SO grateful today that I am sober. Take care, and just don't drink today. Jenm

You are doing so very well. It can be hard work sometimes. The rewards are astonishing. A whole different world of magic. Sobriety is bonkers. But it lets us get the most out of bonkers.

As R Lee is travelling at the moment, think through the first drink I Am Trying. Onwards and upwards my friend!

Be peaceful, be thoughtful and keep positive. Loveness to you I Am Trying

Good afternoon I Am Trying. Bright blessings to you.

I just want to add to R Lee and Susie. It is such an amazing feeling to see another alcoholic chosing sobriety. It gives me so much strength and i am sure many others feel the same. If and when alcohol now taps me on the shoulder i think through the first drink, and remember the last. It then becomes a no brainer.

Be peaceful, keep focused and strong. Loveness to you I Am Trying.

iamtrying, Congratulations on 21 days. Your program is so simple. If only everyone who comes in here could do what you are doing. Keep it up. You are a great example for the new person.

Good evening,

Thank you RLee, Susie, Saint, SecretTiger and all

Day 22 no drinks feeling good...

Remembering again, One day at a time, I am responsible for my actions and their consequences, think thru the first drink...easy and relax...focus on important things for today...

Thank you all for the support...

Have a great evening and night...
