I am only a week sober and this is harder than I thought, all I think about is alcohol, I can't think of anything else, I am dying for a drink so bad it hurts! It's making me hurt myself just so I can think about something other than drinking
It's one day at a time is the AA moto. For some of us it's one hour at a time & for some of us it's one minute at a time. What ever helps you get through your day. We are all different but we are all the same. We have to do what ever we have to get through the day. Some days are harder then others. But if you can remind your self what the end game is it makes things a little easier. No one said it would be in fact just the opposite. But it will get easier with time. I'm 37 years sober & I still think about drinking. How good an ice cold beer would taste. I mean after 37 years I should be able to have just one!!! The temptation will always be there. It's up to us whether we give in to it.
Oh ya, my name is Jeff and I'm an alcoholic.
