Two weeks to go – the grey zone.

Two weeks to go before I quit drinking. I mean, quit for a long time, quit for “real”. (As if the 11 last days weren’t real). Last night for the first time in 12 days, I drank alcohol. At a dinner party, with friends. There were no disasters, no embarrassing events, no regrets. A slightContinue reading “Two weeks to go – the grey zone.”

Five things I learnt after 11 days alcohol free

It hadn’t happened in a long time. For the first time in years I made a daily choice to live without alcohol, and 11 days later, here is what I have learnt. Drinking takes up way more time than you would expect Planning it, doing it, regretting it, recovering from it, planning it again, resisting,Continue reading “Five things I learnt after 11 days alcohol free”

day -26 Binge eating

Urgh…. I knew this would seem “too difficult” for me to handle at some point. Last night I didn’t feel like writing anything: I had nothing to say, except unproductive platitudes, such as “this sobriety thing is boring and repetitive and so is my life”.

Day – 27. Feeling sad

 Wow, today was a strange one. Being sober 100% of the time. SO MUCH FREE TIME. And empty space. Strangely, I am sleeping WAY MORE than when I woke up hungover. That’s not what I would have imagined, what about you? Here comes the first “hard” part of these last few “practice” sober days. IContinue reading “Day – 27. Feeling sad”

Day – 28: telling people

All this secrecy is making things complicated. Today, I told my partner I had set a quit date, in a month. He didn’t really understand because I thinks I am already 99% sober. I told him that the cravings (I didn’t mention the actual drinking) happen when I am alone, not when he is around.Continue reading “Day – 28: telling people”

4 weeks until day 1

So I’ve set a date: September 4th. I’ve started this blog. I’ve signed up for the 90 day challenge on OYNB – for some reason (shame? the secrecy that so many drinkers are familiar with? feeling weird about the God stuff in AA?) I want to keep my quit relatively secret. I know that aContinue reading “4 weeks until day 1”
