survived a rough patch. . . .shew

Yesterday was one of the hardest days I’ve had so far, or at least in quite a while.  And by hard, I  mean on a 1 to 10 scale, 10 being horribly terrible, it was probably a 7.5.  I could not stop thinking about getting a drink on the way home at the place where I started drinking the last time.  Thoughts started filtering in at 2:30pm and lasted until I left work. That drink, yes, the one below –

Blood orange martini

sounded SO damn good.  Rough. I really wanted it.  But, I didn’t let it sway me into making my way there.  By the time I was on the bus, I had forgotten about it.   It’s just hard being at work and having these drinking thoughts running through your mind.  Trying to stay focused on the task at hand and internally battling my drinking demon.  Sheesh

Tonight I go to my first acupuncture session. It will be the first and will involve lots of talking about me with a session at the end.  I cannot wait to give it a try.  I understand clarity can come with this along with just moving things around inside to create a better flow and balance.  I’m scheduled for 10 sessions and can’t wait to see how I feel 🙂

Today is day 63.

    Ohhhhh well done you, how tough for you to have to fight it out With the drink demon. I follow you very closely cos you and I should be at the same day count except I give in too easily and too often. I love what you are doing and am so jealous of your women’s group that go out and do things. I have looked around here for a similar but not been lucky yet. The mentality in the UK different to North America and people are more insular. Keep going! I wish you great success and continue to read even if I don’t comment.

  5. I am glad you didn’t drink.
    I often had those thoughts at work, which drove me nuts!
    Happy Day 63!!

  6. That’s good stuff! Day 63 is amazing. It’s the days when we are down and feel like throwing it all away that you dig deeper, reach out and breathe. Super excited for you!

    Great job Debbie, I am glad that you have 63 days and are sticking with it. It is true that if you can let the feeling pass through you it definitely goes away.

    Well done. Is this the acupuncture in the ears I’ve heard others have … be interested to hear your experiences with it.

  9. So glad for you Debbie, you get stronger each time you rebel against the craving!
