      Trying to make it happen

      Hey all,
      Just like everyone here just trying to make the quit happen. Everyday is a new "I wanna quit day " but just can't seem to find day one.
      It's always YOUR choice!

      Head on over to the nest, Fluff, we have several folks just beginning again. You will have lots of quit buddies! Pinecone wrote today that the nest provides two things he didn't have on his own, tools and support.
      Tomorrow never comes inour world, start today, dont let AL take another day of your precious life! We have had some wonderful conversations today that might be helpful to you. Link is in my signature line. Hugs to you, Byrdie

      Fluff, Byrdy speaks the truth, for us tomorrow never comes, we only have today, we get through today and then deal with the next, every day is a new experience with it's own challenges, but, you don't have to face them alone. There are so many here that have walked in your shoes, and found a way to a better life. Why not make today your day 1, then worry about the next.....and stay here and keep coming back for any help and support that you need....it is just one day at a time you know....
      Quitting and staying quit isnít easy, itís learning a whole new way of thinking. Itís accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
      Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
      Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.

      October 20-day 1.

      Hi- and thanks for the replies!
      Okay Today IS day one-I'm up early, feel okay- having my coffee and getting ready for work soon. I'm so tired of the drinking cycle- I function pretty well during the day but it's always tiresome- I'm always so tired- and it's from not getting a good night's sleep because of drinking from dinner time right till I go to bed. Ugh.
      So, I'm going to work, then to watch my daughter's volleyball game at 4:00- then make dinner and just not drink.
      One day at a time!
      It's always YOUR choice!

      Fluff, I'm so glad to hear that you've begun day 1! I read your post last evening and have been trying to think of the "magic words" that would convince you to begin. But of course, this isn't magic. It is a matter of choosing, over and over and over, not to take one drink. It truly is a leap of faith - faith that what people here are telling you is true: that you can gain your life back, that you will make it through your cravings, that it won't always be so hard, that you are stronger than you think, that you will love yourself again, that you'll never regret making this change, that someday your main regret will be that you didn't do this sooner, and that you will always be able to come here and find someone who is more than willing to listen to you and offer support. Congratulations on beginning what can be one of the best times of your life!

      fluff, to be totally honest, all of us join you on your day 1! For each and every one of us, today is day 1 on the road to the rest of our lives! Glad you decided to start the journey today and not "someday", and we're all here to support that decision!

      Thanks NoSugar and ABCowboy-
      I got home from work at 1:30, ate lunch and really feel soooo tired. Why the heck do I repeat this habit after feeling like crap- it makes no sense.
      Anyway gonna lie down on the couch and try to get a snooze in before my daughter's volleyball game.

      October 21-Day 2

      I feel so much better this morning-even though my sleep was a bit off. I had trouble falling asleep even though I was tired- finally I took a melatonin tablet and that worked for a few hours and then woke up and had a hard time falling back to sleep again but eventually did- so even with a night of fitful sleep I am feeling so much better than yesterday morning.
      I'm loving my coffee this morning!
      It wasn't too hard to stay away from drinking last night because I was sooo tired and tired of the habit. I actually didn't want to drink- no craving- just wishing I was a week ahead of where I am at now.
      Have to get ready for work!
      Can't wait for day three and more!
      It's always YOUR choice!
