    Back Again

    Howdy y’all, it’s Robin again. I got myself down to a “reasonable” amount of drinking for a while (thanks all for your support), but before long I was spiraling back into 12+ a day. When I’m drinking that much, it’s embarrassing yet the idea of quitting is terrifying. My girlfriend and I decided to go a month alcohol free for January, and as much as I knew I needed it, I didn’t know if I could.

    I did a not-really taper: 14+ for a few days, 11, 9, 8, 3, 0. That was a few days ago. Today is my third day totally sober, and I gotta tell you - it’s freaking awesome. I can’t remember feeling this good in a long time. Getting up in the morning is now exciting, rather than dreading the painful hours until my next several beers. I’m thinking straghter. I have more energy. As of last night, I’m even sleeping a little bit! Still taking it day by day though.

    Cheers, hamsters! Keep counting.

      The sleep is what I’ve missed the most!!! This is my first week sober in a bit and I’m enjoying it as well. I think the hardest part for me after being sober a while is why I wanted to stop drinking in the first place, and I go right back into it. I’m wishing you the best, and great job with your taper!!
