Today I was at the store doing grocery shopping. I saw a bottle of wine and almost grabbed it without thinking. The urge was so automatic...it was almost like I could already feel the relief of opening it before I even touched it. Crazy. Then I went to the produce aisle and got a cleansing juice instead just so I could have something to drink on the way home to get my mind off of the wine. Today is day 5 of no alcohol. The shakes are still there but getting better. My digestive issues and energy have improved 10 fold. It feels good to not wake up hungover, but the cravings are there. Looking forward to starting the Rx to help with this. Good luck ya'll, it's a jungle out there.
I have had a drinking problem for all of my adult life. This is not my first try to quit but may be the best chance I've given myself yet. Hope to connect with you all and beat this.
