yes. this is lame. but true.

i wanted to write a post this morning, like a sober FAQ. Is it normal to feel like this? why don’t i lose weight right away? will i ever sleep normally again?

and then i searched my blog for an explanation that i remember writing, and yeah, so then i found this post saying exactly what i wanted to say today. how lame is it to republish your own shit? lame. totally. but it still fits with the contents of my inbox today 🙂


Yes. it does suck that you don’t lose weight when you first quit drinking. Yes i agree. It’s unfair.

Yes, it’s totally OK to stay home instead of socializing on your FIRST weekend sober. Yes. You’re taking care of you.

Yes, you can quit drinking without telling everyone you have a PROBLEM. you don’t have to tell your husband yet. You will find a way of explaining what you’re doing that feels good to you.

I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • Not lame, just a great reminder. I am 58 days happily sober today and just told my husband yesterday’s that I am no longer drinking. So I’m glad to know I’m not alone 🙂

  • I made it through a really challenging day yesterday and am on Day 5! Yea! Felt so good to wake up without a hangover this morning and was chirping around my grumpy husband who wasn’t feeling so well himself. I get to give myself my 5 day sober treat today! Have a wonderful day Belle!Holly

  • and I also linked to your original post in a blog post I put up a couple of hours ago… so Iguess the Universe wants that put out there again today 🙂 xx
