its just another day another success in the kitty...day 62/365
102/365. Lately I have been really bored as I am not doing much other than surfing the net. I almost relapsed by telling myself what's the point. I have just been somewhat of a mess lately in the sense that I feel purposeless. I realize that although physically I am "sober", psychologically I am still addicted. I have unrealistic narratives that go through my head, even if they are not necessarily "R rated". Another contributing factor would be my sleep. I have been going to sleep much later than I probably should be. It is scary how I almost convinced myself that 3 something months meant nothing and I was nearly ready to throw it away for a meaningless bit of pleasure.
167 days completed.
Another day one day at a time.
I look at my face in the mirror these days and it seems I have gotten younger. I was suffering from hair loss but that seems to have stagnated. My energy is up. Confidence is much better. I am fitter than I have ever been in a long time. I sleep better. My financial situation has improved. I still have significant debt but I am on my way to paying them in the next few months.
This journey has became significantly much easier by attacking the root of my problem which is toxic shame originating from my childhood instead of focusing on abstinence and hoping the problem will solve itself somehow. It is way way easier. I can 'swat' away urges with ease these days. It is almost unbelievable. I honestly think that if we know and attack the root of this problem, we will be engaging in healthy recovery rather than just abstinence.
Some people say that sleep is more important than diet and exercise (https://2mealday.com/article/sleep-important-diet-exercise-optimise-sleep/). Do not underestimate the importance of sleep. Going without enough sleep for a long time can cause depression. Self care is important during recovery.
I am officially over 1/2 year clear!
An easy going day. Minimal urges.
Rome wasn't built in a day. You can do it. I'm only slightly ahead of you for a little bit. But I do understand what that feeling is.
I’m on day zero. Long way to go but it’s a must that I stop. Pray for me
Day 100. Easier to resist urges at this point but never experienced any so called super powers
