Some Days Will Go This Way

7.20pm and I have pretty much skulked off to bed. I was more or less assaulted by wine lust in the playground this afternoon (I know right? Talk about inappropriate triggers!) No particular reason – I am a little anxious but that seems to be a fairly consistent theme in early recovery and the weather is lovely (a perfect occasion to… neck a bottle of wine and pass out, naturally) but I actually think it might just be my brain realizing, “We’re serious about this, are we?” and panicking. One day at a time indeed, and this is number 17.

  1. Yes! Places we love to be, places we hate to be, good days, bad days, morning, nighttime, weekends, weekdays…in new sobriety (hell, sometimes in OLD sobriety, or so I hear) it can allllll be triggering.

    Yay, you for noticing and taking necessary measures!

  2. Ahhh early sobriety can be such a bitch. The panic and anxiety are ugly beasts to deal with but seem to slowly get less scary as the days go on. I’ve recently had a resurgence of my depression, after feeling oh-so-confident in my sobriety… and I don’t really know how to manage it just yet, so I just breathe through it. Go to bed early. Take a bath. Eat 15 tubs of ice cream. Whatever helps in that minute, as long as it isn’t booze. Somedays that’s the best I can do.

    Congratulations on 17 days, what an amazing thing! Be kind to yourself and keep on with the “one day at a time” mentality, it works. Sending you warm and happy thoughts to wherever you are from an incredibly rainy Vancouver.

    1. Thanks for this. I’m sorry you’re battling. Deciding to get sober has kind of brought me up against my depression, which I have just been drinking through for the longest time (not super helpful it turns out.) A bath and 15 tubs of ice cream sounds a lot better! Hugs to you and thanks again. I’m glad to “meet” you. xx
