I am on my 19th day without alcohol of any kind. I certainly feel much better than I did during the first week but still haven't gotten my sleep patterns ironed out. Also, I'm feeling a great deal more "space out" this time and experience a multitude of aches and pains. Basically, I just feel really old and unable to get motivated to do much. Taking a shower, cleaning the kitchen or bathroom, and doing the laundry are major undertakings.
The last couple of days, I've felt the influence of the little AV telling me that I've proven my cause and that it's okay to have a drink. However, I catch it and remind myself about what I've gone through over the last couple of weeks to get to this point. It's amazing how soon we forget!
Anyway, back to the "sober" grind!

Day 21 - 3 weeks into this, this time! One of the strategies I've employed (it seemed to work with cutting back on smoking), is to have plenty of the evil juice close at hand, which I know is against all advice I've read, but it seems to provide an emotional brace. Anyway, this is, of course, a "work in progress."
